According a prespective that i see music in a diverged form born into diversity in a comparison with all components of life, I can`t tell you that music is truly a repetition as well i can`t tell life is a repetition. Giving an example: Seasons are repeating always one time in a year and i surely can show each spring or each summer, or each winter, or each autumn in a peculiar picture, every year that come again a change of season! Trying to explain that i can make every time a recreation with diffrent elements to show a new season.
Music in that point of view have always the chance to recreate it self, cause it deals with the same elements of life in several diffrent ways, over and over again!
I see music much more like a recreation and that way i can`t totally pull away the roots of the past of the music, cause recreation, like life is timeless, have no end, can`t put by nothing, everything takes part. In the other words, i think it`s impossible produce music starting from scratch.
To describe by a simple image, it`s like a giant and infinite circle that never stops.
