    It's a dangerous world. Trust no-one! Music is the only safe place, apart from the rabbit hole.

    Signature

    I believe that the justification of art is the internal combustion it ignites in the hearts of men... The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenalin but is, rather, the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.

    Glenn Gould
