Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
To play without passion is inexcusable!
