At the Core of Sound is Music

“Sound today is to music what colour has been to painting since the beginning of time…”

The major contribution of our art is to have comprehensively revisited the word music, showing that it is not limited to traditional instruments and voice… To have dared to rethink the ancestral notions of music and instrument, and the status of composer.

This renewal of the art of sounds (for music is first and foremost sound) holds in itself – just like traditional or contemporary instrumental works – the ability to appeal to human sensibility and, even, to reach out to a much wider audience than what it currently does. This is made possible by the expressive powers and possibilities of a technology that opens up a vast field of new meanings, and by the innovative imagination of the composers of today.

Of course, we still have to deal with the weight of the conventions of our times…
