While King Crimson are currently touring Italy, Robert has posted this observation on the nature of musical performance via his Facebook page.
The act of musical performance: if we understood what was going on in a musical performance, not only do we have an analogy for The Creation – it IS The Creation!
1. Music has its beginning in, and moves from, Love.
2. Music emerges in, through and from Silence.
3. it is impossible to convey how much Music wishes to be heard.
4. Music is constantly and readily available to all, to the extent that we are ouselves available to Music.
The Act Of Music is the music.
