Maybe, just maybe it was actually not because dancing guy is the epitome of a fearless leader that the crowd followed. Maybe its because (a) he was tripping and (b) some DJ/band just dropped a really great tune. Its as likely about the power of music as all those other 100% hindsight projections!

> Debussy is quoted as saying that he never gave pedal indications because he felt that pedaling was too fine an art to convey on paper and that too many subpar pianists simply use the pedal to hide the fact that they are butchering the music. Interesting, slightly extreme attitude but it got me thinking about the role of sustain (& variation) in all keyboard sounds. With physical keyboards ie piano, rhodes etc it is a function that is present by design, but how many of you virtual instrument players have pedals? Thoughts?
