Everyone is born with genius, but most people only keep it a few minutes.
As quoted by Martha Graham, in Dance Observer, Volumes 24-27 (1957), p. 5
Contrary to general belief, an artist is never ahead of his time but most people are far behind theirs. I was the first composer to explore, so to speak, musical outer space.Edgard Varèse
There is an idea, the basis of an internal structure, expanded and split into different shapes or groups of sound constantly changing in shape, direction, and speed, attracted and repulsed by various forces. The form of the work is a consequence of this interaction. Possible musical forms are as limitless as the exterior forms of crystals.Edgard Varèse
