The popularity of “Genre bending” (ie. indie classical, post-classical whatever) is a result of:
a) The inefficiency of the conservatory and traditional contemporary classical world to produce real, effective art
b) neo-liberal appropriation to create new avenues and products for exploitation of creative resources (ie. more ways for the classical world to mimic the consumption-of-music-as-product system of commercial music)
