In the Modern Mode

The modern remains long after the contemporary fades.

To conflate the modern and the contemporary is a minor error, but an error nonetheless.

Works that are a hundred years old (and older) have neither been equaled nor surpassed, and sounds of the present moment may have little impact now, only to gain in value over the course of cultural change-- while time obliterates others.

One need not know, and need only create.
