I'm posting this video because I think it poses the issue of individual taste. How can one reconcile my feelings about this drummer and the music being played with the feelings of thousands of others who not only find no beauty here, but would probably characterize this video as unpleasant or abrasive or ugly? Are my reasons (self-taught (see drumstick placement in hand) technical skill and ease, artful composition, balance and counterbalance) persuasive, and is my Wittgensteinian utterance, "that's beautiful," valid enough? Or is this just not beautiful?
