This discussion has taken place on this list numerous times in the past, most recently in mid-December, and before that in early August. You may want to check the archives.

The general consensus at that time was that there is a dichotomy between subjectivity and objectivity: music that extropians like and music written by extropians. As a musician myself, I will submit that my own compositions would not be collectively liked by all extropians; additionally, the amount of styles in which I write (mostly instrumental) would make it hard for any one person to like all of my music. However, I am an extropian, and therefore, in a sense I write "extropian" music. On the other side of the coin, music listening is extremely might as well discuss the uniformity of "extropian" taste in clothing.
