I’m not against recording performance for future viewing, I actually like viewing these recordings and think there is a historical reason for perusing these archives. What I was referring to was the fact that "streaming live" holds no excitement for me. Isn’t every performance, concert, video, film "live" at the time of the recording? But its not the same experience as being in the room with the performers. Thats what I meant by communal. I just yearn for live performances.
