Put together music that violates the laws of music (as you understand them) and advertise it as "you cannot help but totally hate this music". Do you think that everyone will agree? Don't you think that just one person (or future person) will say that they like that music? We humans obviously have prejudices for certain tones, colors, morals, logics, etc, but we have another tendency to love things that are contrary to those 'universals'. Art is known to play with universals and contradict them. At one time portraits and nature paintings were the common concept of good art. This changed gradually with an introduction of deviation from those classical concepts of art. This kind of movement has even influenced art with all kinds of contradictory concepts to 'what is art' being used to make us rethink our universal inclinations. The art of 21st century would not be recognizable to someone in the 15th century who valued 'universals' of good art.

Warm regards, Harv
