Absolutely. But it ain't no one-to-one correlation. I am a proud
exponent of hybrid art and working within my $$ means. If that means
I work with a 1/2" portapac because that is what I have access to
then I will explore the technology for what it offers. Same goes for
IMAX, should anyone ever pass me a surreptitious million bucks. I
will never try to pass it off as something it isn't: equivalent to
another format.

One of my favorite recordings is completely made up! An imaginary
event! But it sounds amazingly "authentic."

Lol Coxhill's "Couscous",,992113,00.html

Also another fine example of noise usage.
