Map 165 is Martin A. Smith and Tim Hooper
Music is sound that has been organised into patterns we recognize.
Written music is an interpretable map.
Improvisation can be as sterile as chamber music.
Ideas must be planned and mapped; a course should be set.
Then let the stars guide you.
Atonality is the sum of bad mathematics.
Sometimes the sums are meant to be wrong.
Life feels better when the equation balances.
Is silence sound?
Playing a note there instead of there can ruin the whole thing.
Beauty And Evocation
Being ugly is easy; beauty takes effort.
Any space can be transformed by sound; the sound manipulates the space.
If the music doesn’t move you, it hasn’t worked.
A universe can be created in a room.
