Most discussions on the sociological elements of art ignore the inner aesthetic nature of the form. Inversely when musicologists investigate form and structure in art they do so isolating the socio-political nature of the form. Consequently we are unable to understand how the experience of an art form is itself political. By studying this intersection we will understand Culture and Art with greater nuance.
