And what is the purpose of writing music?
One is, of course, not dealing with purposes but dealing with sounds.
Or the answer must take the form of paradox:
a purposeful purposelessness or a purposeless play.

John Cage

According to an ancient Japanese legend, the shadows on the moon are actually an apparition of a monster called Katsuraotoko (the man of Katsura)


Allumée dans ton coeur,
au chant
des violons, la danse macabre:
ses yeux profonds son faits de vide.

Lettere a Izanami

Lo buon maestro disse: “Omai, figliuolo,
s’appressa la città c’ha nome Dite,
coi gravi cittadin, col grande stuolo”
