Why is Wilco getting so much play? | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

Why is Wilco getting so much play?

It seems Wilco is getting quoted every couple weeks on that interweb. Ya their tunes are great, and I’m still listening to their albums on a regular basis (almost as much as R.E.M.). But it seems that they’re turning into this weird symbol for technology/music. If they were electronica I could possibly by the argument. Ironically though, they sound as great acoustically as they do with power – maybe that’s the point.

The latest blog blessing comes from World Changing

The original blessing that caught my attention a couple weeks ago came from kottke The excerpt was from “Who Own’s Culture”. What struck me was a potential word swaps written below.

Original Quote: Tweedy: “Music is finished in the audience”. He credited the audience with 50% ownership in the creation of a musical piece…the creator is not much until someone listens to the music they’ve created.

Swap Quote #1: “Advertising is finished in the audience”. He credited the audience with 50% ownership in the creation of a message…the advertiser is not much until someone acts on to the message they’ve created.

Swap Quote #2: “Real design is understood the audience”. He credited the audience with 100% ownership in the comprehension of a message…the designer is not much until someone acts on the the directions they’ve understood.
