Destroy it? I think a peice of music that is capable of generating such a
physical reaction is pretty interesting. I would be quite impressed with
myself if I was able to create music that caused the audience to get sick
and vomit on each other! Probably wouldn't get a lot of repeat customers,
but it might make for a rather compelling artistic statement of some sort
or another. I dimly recall some musician who was in search of a sound that
would cause the audience to spontaneously lose control of their
bowels....another thing you probably wouldn't want to try in an office
