Listening is to become an unreasoning instrument, to become a sounding board to welcome the vitality of the World.
Responding is in the primary sense: “Making your feelings known in return”.
Simplifying is to amplify what is unique.
Composing is to releav invisibility-in-act.
“Writing is hearing…”
“[A musician] is a great listener…”
“We hear by imagination more than by perception”
(*) Gaston Bachelard
