We’ve seen a greater explosion of everything we love in the digital age than ever before. I really mean this pertains to every sector of society. For example, I’m a fanatic for very strange music that very few people really care about—mostly 8th through 16th century European chant music. I can have all of that that I want, right now, at the touch of a button! It’s unbelievable! This generation hears more of this music than anybody ever did in the 15th century! It is like universalized. And everything has been universalized. The information has been totally liberated in the digital age, and that’s what you want.
