“Street music was a continual subject of controversy. Intellectuals were irritated by it. Serious musicians were outraged - for frequently it appears that unmusical persons would engage in the practice, not at all to bring pleasure, but merely to have their silence bought off. But resistance moved to the middle class as well, as soon as it contemplated an elevation of lifestyle. After art music moved indoors, street music became an object of increasing scorn, and a study of European noise abatement legislation between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries shows how increasing amounts of it were directed against this activity.” R. Murray Schafer, from The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World
