Concept design from the decoration of my pre-war style trixordo
Taking the opportunity from an interesting discussion at the Rebetiko Forum, regarding the traditional art of lutherie, I though to create a poll, and ask the global opinion from the friends of this blog, regarding the traditional instruments of their country-place.
Do you believe that luthiere is a form of art? Do you believe that an instrument should also follows the basic laws of aesthetics, and the artistic traditional techniques of its origin? Evaluating an instrument's quality should not stop only at evaluating its sound?
Or that an instrument is simply a tool of music and sound re-production, where art, materials been used, and aesthetics, playing no significant role at the evaluation of its quality? just only the sound quality?
At the end, the professional of instrument making, is more related to a Musical-Carpentry or to an Artistic-Creation?
