“There are at base only two things: recitative and aria. Or said differently: telling a story (narrative) and stopping time.
Or put yet another way: the consecutive, the one-after-the-other, and the simultaneous, the all-at-once.” – Peter Ablinger

“Even in its presence, this symphony does not exist.” – Yves Klein

“Well, you know how I adjusted to that problem of the radio in the environment – very much as the primitive people adjusted to the animals which frightened them, and which probably as you say, were intrusions, they drew pictures of them on their caves. And so I simply made a piece using radios. Now, whenever I hear radios, even a single one, not just twelve at a time…I think, well, they’re just playing my piece!” – John Cage
