“ 'I don’t think that music is really about music,' he posits.

I think that music is about something else….We as creators, as composers and musicians, spend our whole lives trying to get the right sounds.  It’s very, very difficult and we fine tune the sounds till we get just exactly what we want and so on.  But that’s not really what music is about.  What music is really about is love and sorrow and the whole range of human emotion—making audible the whole range of human existence and human life.  I’m interested in sound only to a certain extent, to the extent that it gets me to where I want to be in terms of my musical storytelling, my musical narrative.  That’s the importance of sound to me.” - Paul Moravec
