What Does It Take To Grow a Genre?

this is true of all genres of music and actually of all of life - if you don't keep your eyes open the possibilities remain very narrow and the vista is restricted - it is only when your eyes and heart are open that possibilites expand and discovery becomes almost a necessity - how do you think we evolved from living in the open to living in caves to living in houses to whatever else we live in - music is the same growth so is the use of new tools in music and construction and technology look at the evolution of what can be expressed in the world of  art!

open your ears to all music not just one genre see what is happening in the world and it is reflected in what you are interested in - the possibilities to grow and expand are astounding - limits / likes and dislikes are all shackles binding and constraining
