The more I can learn about music, the more I learn about other things.Pat Metheny
Sometimes I almost feel like music is a mistake - like we are not supposed to know about it.
Music comes in through our ears, but we all know that it is not just sounds. There is something else included in music that is very difficult to define. It reminds us of where we were before and where we are going after. It is a mysterious vapor that somehow slips in the cracks between this plane of existence and some other one. The people who are good musicians have the ability to conjure up more of that vapor than others.
More and more, I see that it is the same thing you find wherever there is love, intensity, energy, or human potential. All those good things include this same mysterious vapor that is the fabric of music.Pat Metheny
As I get more involved and more advanced as a musician, I see that everything I do has the potential to be music and vice versa.Pat Metheny
