"Noise creates superficiality - it's the curse of our modern times." - David Schiller

I love this quote. I tell my students all the time to not make noise...but to make music. I think they're finally starting to understand my meaning. Music is not just notes on a page or playing an instrument correctly. It is embracing the aesthetic as well.


This can also mean to slow down and enjoy the moments that are not filled with radio/TV/movies/discussion/music/video games/etc. It's unusual and a little scary to feel such silence, but it can be good, too. It makes us face ourselves.
