Quote of the Day 2/17/15

“Outside the dominant, no salvation. Except if somewhere else, in other phenomena not linked with the degrees of pitch of sounds, a new form of communication is found… It could be, of course, that the public, on the threshold of this gateway, should read its somewhat Danteque inscription. Not to lose all hope, but at least to abandon the hope of finding pleasures, emotions, sadness or joy comparable to those of the dominant universe. Perhaps this will be a new asceticism, with thorny, and possibly dizzying, pathways toward other, less comfortable, heavens-” Pierre Schaeffer, In Search of the Concrete, p. 117
