Considering that arts, and Music in particular are much more than an accessory, then "background music" does not exist, as it takes over the whole, claiming its starring role.

The quality of artistry is the capacity to assume innocence at will, the quality of experiencing innocence as if for the first time.
(Robert Fripp)

The most complicated musical instrument to get recorded, is any one played by someone with no talent.
(Nick Davis)
