Since the 1970s, the critical and cultural interest in sound has largely eschewed the tendency to categorize the beautiful and proper into the binary categories of music and noise; instead, we find sound culture as more critically attentive to the world around us as a kind of buzzing confusion of sound. The ostensible goal of this critical gesture is to democratize our listening habits by loosening the term "music" from definitions of taste and value such that anything could be considered music to our ears.

They are quick to draw parallels to contemporary issues and controversies, for naturalism's reach is clearly not confined to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
