Not really, I say.
Music is as much about the space between the notes as the notes themselves. It is about the gap between the words when we speak. It is about the silences in our life that better allow us to ‘hear’ the essence.
There is a time in our lives for noise – for music, for laughter, for talk… and there is a time for silence – for reflection, for dreaming, for taking a deep breath.
And we need both to keep us whole.
