SAMPLE EXCERPT:

[. . .] We hardly pay attention to the role of electronic media in music and thus fail to detach the real from the unreal. We accept things as they are presented to us without ever questioning their authenticity.

In short, the reality and unreality of music is just one way Pynchon chooses to comment on the invalidity of many theories, values, customs, beliefs and the reality that they all give birth to. In the case of music, he has chosen technology as the metaphor for everything that blurs the reality and replaces it with things insubstantial and less original. (Slade 1974)
