Miller - "Darwin argued that music evolved mainly by sexual selection through mate choice—and that we're uncomfortable acknowledging that fact. He wrote back in 1871 that, "The impassioned orator, bard, or musician, when with his varied tones and cadences he excites the strongest emotions in his hearers, little suspects that he uses the same means by which his half-human ancestors long ago aroused each other's ardent passions, during their courtship and rivalry." He knew that music didn't need to have a "survival value" for the individual or the group; it could spread through purely reproductive benefits. He suggested that the more musically talented proto-humans attracted more sexual partners, or higher-quality sexual partners, than their less-musical rivals. We see sexual selection for music in many other species—insect song, frog song, bird song, whale song, and gibbon song—so I think that's a reasonable default theory for how humans evolved music. It's the theory to beat."

(from http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2012/04/did-humans-invent-music/255945/ - two scientists discussing the origins of music - an interesting read.)

and i have to say that having had the opportunity to watch humans in clubs i'm inclined to agree with miller and darwin..
Two scientists debate whether the capacity to make and enjoy songs came from biological evolution—or from the advent of civilization.

I can recommend academics like Timothy D. Taylor and David Hesmondhalgh (and some of the work by Jonathan Sterne) on these topics (since they're, without any knowledge beforehand, way more readable than Deleuze or Adorno).

I found this in an issue of The Wire Magazine in which Mark Fisher reviews Rustie’s new Glass Swords album. “An analogy can be drawn here between this artificial inflation of culture and internet pornography and Viagra; they dispense with seduction and aim directly at pleasure. The Italian theorist Franco Berardi has argued that such phenomena have grown in popularity because of an erotic deficit in digital-communicative culture. Since we are so ...

remember reading that cornelius cardew (stockhausen's protoge at one point) later denounced him as (paraphrasing) a bourgeois douche. i agree with cornelius..
