it's arguable that the sensory effects caused by some pieces can
trick the listener into "feeling" they have had some profound
artistic experience. oops, i said the A-word.

i've always held that a piece ought to be able to stand its own at
various dynamics through mono shitbox diffusion before it hits the
public ears. but that's probably a function of my desire to hear
more than just pretty (sic) sounds in a work (ea or not).

there are a number of artists working in lower dynamics, for a number
of reasons, but who perhaps do not participate publicly in
discussions such as this, because, as with their music, they aren't
compelled to "[prosyletize] with a hammer".
