seriously though, that sounded kind of flippant and I didn't mean it that way.

Don't "new musics" result from social, (technological, political,
familial, etc.) issues? The big shift in thinking about the turn of
the last century slammed art (and politics and technology...)

It just doesn't seem to me that art is a generative logic that is
(yet) possible to program any more than a future history would be.
(Foundation and Empire was it?)

So after the theoretical model, then what? You could add possible
social pressures, climate might end up being a factor, technical
changes that would affect it, and ... else?
