"In der Musik wird Alignment hörbar".
"Jedes Kunstwerk ist eine Momentaufnahme".
"People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song. So I stay in the moment and listen… As long as I can listen to the moment, I'll always have music." | "If you put cells under a microscope and you put music on, you'll see them move and start to dance. It affects the soul… I hear music in everything". | To live is to be musical, starting with the blood dancing in your veins. Everything living has a rhythm. Do you feel your music?"
"Searching for music is like searching for God. They're very similar. There's an effort to reclaim the unmentionable, the unsayable, the unseeable, the unspeakable, all those things, comes into being a composer and to writing music and to searching for notes and pieces of musical information that don't exist." | "A song has to take on character, shape, body and influence people to an extent that they use it for their own devices. It must affect them not just as a song, but as a lifestyle."
"When real music comes to me – the music of the spheres, the music that surpasses understanding – that has nothing to do with me, cause I'm just the channel. The only joy for me is for it to be given to me, and to transcribe it like a medium… those moments are what I live for."
"To take credit for them [the songs] would be like taking credit for the sunset if you're a painter." | "Music is always a reflection of what's going on in the hearts and minds of the culture." | "Music is a mirror that lets the listener say, 'I can be in the stillness in this two-bar phrase, so I can be in the stillness in my life.' And that might not seem like a lot, but this is how you expand your soul."
"Die Musik, mit der ich mich beschäftige, muss nicht unbedingt Musik genannt werden. In ihr gibt es nichts, woran man sich erinnern soll. Keine Themen, nur Aktivität von Ton und Stille." | "Ein richtiges Verstehen interessiert mich nicht (…) Klängen macht es nichts aus, ob sie einen Sinn ergeben oder ob sie in die richtige Richtung gehen. Sie sind, und das genügt ihnen. Und mir auch." | "Everything we do is music."
"I feel as though I’ve built up a relationship with the piano. It’s almost like a person. Like, it’s really comforting just to sit down and play. If I haven’t got a particular idea. I just sit down and play chords, and then the chords almost dictate what the song should be about because they have their own moods.” | "I believe in the magic reality of transformation. I believe that in myself occurs a continual mutation – as if from the larva of a nymph, from a chrysalis nymph in the process of sublimation."
"Ich glaube die Energie, die Texte, die Melodien sind im Äther, und ich bitte das Universum, mich als Kanal zu benutzen, und dann bereite ich mich auf Empfang vor."
"Musik ist Form gewordener Geist.
It is spirit taking form."
