    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

Yeah, it's pretty overwhelming, even for seasoned veterans. There are so many genres, styles, artists, and just a massive quantity of music. I think there are styles for every particular taste in the world of electronic music. The hard, but fun, part is finding the ones that suit you.

Here's a cool and calming classic from 1976!

Thanks, Mkoll. That was great. Overwhelming is the perfect word. And - correct me if I'm wrong - but it doesn't seem to share the same cohesiveness of many other forms of music (which is fine). Perhaps this has to do with its more technical, experimental origins in the early 19th century by engineers and technicians in studios and labs, as opposed to a genre using traditional instruments in public performance - I don't know. It seems equally at home no matter where it is happening in the world. And that makes it extremely hard to track and follow, unlike jazz for instance which can be fairly easily tracked from the streets of New Orleans to now. For me, I like to do a scary amount of research into the music I listen to (purely for the joy of it) and I think electronic may require the discovery of many different roots instead of just one. So I guess I just have to pick and artist, dive in and when the trail runs dry pick another.

I completely agree. Today, a single person with just a computer and software can make and record music that would have been impossible for an individual to do 50 years ago.

Digitally Imported! Nice to see they're still going strong. They've really expanded their selection, I see.

Don't usually listen to music unless watching "America's Got Talent". Great operatic duo, two women, who were amazing. I will tune in next week just to hear what opera they select next. Do play music. Like Jazz of all kinds.
