In this chapter I explore the production and reception of art via the work of Derek Bailey. I discuss a number of values, or ways of thinking about value, which, it has been suggested, apply to his music. I argue that many of these are mistaken and suggest instead other ways of thinking about the nature and purpose of the particular choices he made over his career. I conclude with some comments on Nietzsche and the idea of an ecology of value.
