traditionally associated with symphonies and sonatas, and these will continue well into “the digital mu- sic revolution.” But that says nothing specifically about the place of instrumental art music in a digital world— a more difficult question. Absolute music in West- ern classical traditions might seem resolutely “waterproof” in the face of ris- ing digital tides, since it is defined by authorship, genre, and construction— identified according to principles of exclusion rather than inclusion. Digital Mythologies / 125 Absolute music has long been held up as music

conversation about windows and what these studios are doing. It doesn’t make any sense to most consumers, but the economics make a lot of sense for the motion picture studios. Along those lines, how do these changes affect the moratorium strategy that worked so well in the past for Disney? That’s a great question. At Disney we often discussed what the role of the moratorium strategy should be in a digital world. If we weren’t making it available, then the pirates would do it for us. I can’t say with any specifi c- ity what is happening with the moratorium strategy

necessary to make it a really large business has come into place. So it’s grown very rapidly. The marketplace is growing at a nice double- digit percentage every year, but it’s still a relatively small part of the business, and making this a bigger part of the business is one of our biggest priorities. If you look at tele vi sion, there is not a rental business, so we only have a digital sell- through business. Why is that? Why has the rental of tele vi sion been eliminated in some ways? In the digital world, there just hasn’t been a demand for it. There have been

the digital world. So you have these companies that bought up everything. For the guilds it’s now a case of negotiating with consolidated media empires that very cleverly cooperate. Back in 1988, when the issues of cable and video residuals were fi rst boil- ing over, why did the unions get such a bad deal? Short of boring you with the whole history, I will bore you with just some sort of anecdotal recollections of my own. The DVD formula, which was the VHS formula, was really the creature of a series of bungles on the part of the unions in 1984 by the

exclusive sphere of artistic action that allows art to sustain a high level of prestige and, at another ideological level, to provide a repository of transcendental values in a secularized and skeptical world. (Whether it can do either one in a digital world is another question, for another time.) But the actors in this scenario are epithets, not persons. You can’t “humanize” their stories no matter how hard you try. The construction of their maturation or heroic creativity by the avoidance or defeat of interlocutory bonds — of influence in its wider sense

recycling of Hollywood classics, and Internet short f i lmmaking—is similarly articulated through densely interwoven discursive networks. Along with the notion of social mediation, I have stressed the extensive evaluative and interpretive dimensions of home film exhibition and recep- tion. In home film cultures, these dimensions are most evident in relation to technologies with digital affiliations, such as home theater and DVD. An engagement with the digital world of cinema confers, to paraphrase Bour- dieu, titles of cultural nobility on those viewers most immersed

, Instagram posts, even art and museum exhibitions all serve to make accessible and widen the reach of the symbolic versions of these phenomena, while simultaneously increasing their prestige. A materialist interpretation suggests that it is the world around us that shapes and limits our possibilities; the place we are born into is largely where we stay, without exercising considerable individual eff ort to form and manage our own identities.25 In this context, the digital world is often presented as a democratizing force that has the power to change the automatic
