That's a good question. I just thought about this the other day, actually.
A while ago I saw a singer on TV who was talking about plagiarism. And during the conversation he said this: there are only so many notes under the sun
. I think that's true. So that means that there are only so many combinations
of notes possible, as well. Now, the amount of possible combinations is vast. But not infinite, I think.
I also think about the term 'writing' sometimes. I don't know who coined that. But 'discovering' is a more fitting word, I think. I mean, the possibilities regarding music that can be written have always been there to be discovered. I write music. And I feel I can't really take credit for the existence of these possibilities. I mean, I didn't create the universe, you see? The only thing I can take credit for really, is discovering them, I feel. And recording them so that they can be heard.
Anyway, I think the ideas will
run out at some point. But this will probably be in the year 1000000000 or something.
