What Meeting On A Screen Leaves Out
– 7 min –
Some years ago Tanouye Roshi, a Zen master of great wisdom and foresight, gave a talk on the digitization of music. Turntables and tapes were beginning to give way to CD’s and he was saying analog and digital music simply weren’t the same. Digitized sound lops off the highs and lows and approximates everything in between. Likewise recorded analog music is not as rich as a live performance. But he could see the wave of things to come—digital music was becoming more cost effective and convenient—and his point wasn’t that digital was bad, only that we needed to have the sensitivity to know the difference. The digital experience is thinner than analog, and much thinner than full-scale life.
