Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.

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.
