The music seemed to me too important, almost supernatural, bordering on the sacred. (Kaija Saariaho)

Music (“Private gardens” by Kaija Saariaho*) arises from silence and reaches very high, very far, a dream within a dream, of another time. All is in suspense.

Rather than opposing sound and silence, it would be more exact to distinguish the sounds that we make intentionally from those [] which happen on their own. (John Cage)

[steps, gestures, breathing, bits of words, vocal expressions, etc.]

* Kaija Saariaho’s “Private Gardens” for four soloists and electronics manifests lasting proof of a free, expansive approach to sounds in time and space
