The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
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.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
