"Music lives in a multi-dimensional sphere encompassing all possible sounds...the high and low, soft and loud, slow and fast, smooth and rough, legato and staccato.... The essence of creating music is combining these yin and yang parameters of sound so as to enhance their distinctive qualities moving through time. This joining of opposites expresses the joyful unity of life."
