Reminds me of the old saying that if you gave an infinite amount of typewriters to an infinite amount of monkeys, one of them would eventually type up the entire works of Shakespeare. But in this case, the monkeys are humans and the works of Shakespeare are just artworks in general.

But it would take so long that it does not matter.

But no, i don't think this will ever happen, music is too diverse.

 

Not to mention culture. Each culture has its own types of music that all incorporate different rythmns and styles. So yeah, there really is too much variety out there.


My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. - Jack Layton - 1950 - 2011

It's not about how long it takes, it's about the fact that at some point it has got to happen.

Well then yes. It will happen. In truth, everything will eventually repeat itself

I guess if time is infinite, then everything that can possibly happen will happen at some point.

But music is infinite too!  It's not made out of a finite collection of sounds.  There are only 12 notes in the western chromatic scale, but that doesn't take into account rhythm, form, texture, instrumentation, lyrics (which by themselves are infinite because language is infinite), song structure...

 

Music DOES repeat itself, and it has been repeating itself for decades, because all art is derivative.  But it will never repeat itself because it has run out of a finite set of options.


Humanity's destiny is infinity

I love music, I have close to 4000 songs in my library and I know how to play a couple of instruments. 

 

I'm not an expert in music at all but I know enough to agree with Stanley
