And also what bugs me is that you mistake reacting emotionally to the music to actually describing whats going on and hearing the music as an act or knowing what is happening when music is playing. When I describe the music to Inception and hear to notes being played I know that there is a description to whats going on. I know there are guitars playing. I know there are droning electronics playing. Based on your statement the whole piece should be indescribable, which is a fools notion, and that while my memory is being "activated" I am noticing how derivative it is of other scores. Your argument on the other hand says "You couldn't ever effectively describe the score."

If I express my feeling I would say : It's a bad score

When I say something like it's got the same tone and the same construction as The Dark Knight. That is a fact. To prove it listen to The Dark Knight! I did not make it up because from experience I can tell what is similar and what is different in his scores. When I say that Waiting For a Train is droning I know because that is the act that is going on. It's not like it's not happening. And your mangling of words that have clear definitions like "redundant" I.E. characterized by similarity or repetition which is exactly a technique used in the score Dream is Collapsing and Mombasa. It bugs me to know end when BS like "What you like to call BS is what I like to call science" but because if my memory and brain is paying attention to the music you can choose to listen to music any way you like I.E. the Aaron Copeland method or the way I listen to music. Which would then accommodate your grips with the science. Look it up instead of talking in boring circle philosophy.
