I am quite certain in my heart of hearts that modern music and modern art is not a conspiracy, but is a form of truth and integrity for those who practise it honestly, decently and with all their being.
Music is a performing art, as any Native American will tell you. It isn't there in the score.
The blues are like the fugue in 18th century. It's probably the music that belongs most to our time.
I'm outside the music I've made. I have no interest in it.
Music is a performance and needs the audience.
Music remains the most strange of the materials because we don't understand what happens when music moves you.
This is something special. You can attempt to have a kind of non-living music.
