Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Semi-protected edit request on 13 June 2016[edit]

The BBC Blast Music link is broken, I have found the link that does work - http://www.bbc.co.uk/blast/. This should be used instead of the web archive link that is currently being used. 2605:6000:3080:5500:8586:5975:FD53:5FB3 (talk) 20:02, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Remarks about John Cage in the lead[edit]

I have to be careful here to make sure my point is clear. It's about the placement of

However, 20th-century composer John Cage thought that any sound can be music, saying, for example, "There is no noise, only sound."

at the end of the first paragraph. I am not denying the accuracy of this statement, or entering any discussion about the nature of any of Cage's work, but whether this is the best place for the statement about what Cage thought. It has already been writ in the very first sentence of the page that its "..medium is sound and silence." which is what Cage has said there, so there is nothing new about that - noise is also sound. There must be a section of the article in which this sentence is appropriate and important. I think the lead paragraph is not the place for mention of a specific (and ground-breaking) example of a class of music-making: however I have seen that the sentence about Cage is the antithesis of the sentence before it about harmony of the spheres, so it is fitting in that view. I keep well away from any discussion about whether noise is music - a rat's nest of opinions and science.P0mbal (talk) 11:54, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

In the section titled "Public Domain" of the article "Music":

"Music on public domain is all the music created since origins of human beings to first decades of 20th century, and also every musical record that belongs to public domain because it was on public domain since it creation or because it copyright expires. Public domain music can be copied, edited, modified, and sold without any restriction, it makes this music the best resource for musical education."

In the first sentence, please make the "it" before "creation" and the "it" before "because" possessive, i.e. "its". In the same sentence, please make "expires" past tense to match the tense of the sentence, i.e. "expired". In the last sentence, please change the comma before "it" to a semicolon; the sentence currently has a comma splice.

This is not grammar related, but if possible, could ", and also" in the first sentence be changed to "as well as" to make the sentence smoother?

There were more problems than grammar: like Public domain music it didn't give much of an overview. I retitled the section and placed it after the business section. It's unfortunately a bit US-centric, and of course written by a non-lawyer. Sparafucil (talk) 01:55, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
