The difficulty or impossibility of writing about music is a topic of debate at such estimable sites as Musical Perceptions, Sounds and Fury, and Reflections in D minor. I have to admit I never got that old "dancing about architecture" joke, which has been attributed variously to Schopenhauer, Schlegel, Schleiermacher, and Snuffleupagus. Why is music more difficult to write about than any other art form? Why isn't writing about architecture like sculpting about poetry? Or, to quote some imaginative variations introduced by The Fredösphere, like "yodeling about film noir," "woodworking about virtual reality," "chanting about matchstick cathedrals," "weaving about anime," or "boogying about wabi-sabi"? Here is my choice aphorism: writing about music is like writing.
