Default Drugs and Music

Terry Riley, was regarded in the 60's as a classical composer. I'm not sure we'd place him there today.
This was revolutionary in the 60's, a time when LSD, mescaline, peyote, psilocybin, and pot were opening minds. Experimentation, breaking out of the status quo was happening everywhere, freaking out those who didn't understand what was happening .
However there's a long list of classical composers who did drugs, Stravinsky, Bernstein, Berlioz and my favourite (although we're not sure which 'herbs' she indulged in) Abbess Hildegard Von Bingen.

I think it would annoy Aryan Marx if the mods deleted these pointless threads and put all the posts in the "What Are You Listening To?" thread where they belong. So you should do that.

‘Drugs’ covers a wide field. Without maryjane my artistic flair fails me.
However, I’ve been told by viewers that without them being stoned they can’t make any sense out of my art. But should art ‘make sense’ ? Reminds me of working in an open kitchen many decades ago where one of my works hung just on the other side. A group of art lecturers standing in front of my work gave a detailed analysis of what it all meant. Hearing the pretentious bullshXt they came out with I told them they had no idea what they were talking about “How would you know” etc was the response. I took great joy in telling them I was the artist.
They departed in a huff.


Now back to the music. . . .

There’s a danger we could wander a long way off topic, whatever that is, but whenever anyone uses ‘do drugs’ I’m always left wondering which ones.

The obvious answer being "the ones that they do".

Oh yeah I didn’t say.

My drugs are mostly pot, psychedelics and MDMA.
