When music loses its relationship to dance,

it loses its sustaining and nurturing resonance with

the physical body, both of the individual performer

and, by implication, that of the Earth itself;

When music loses its relationship to poetry,

it loses its sustaining and nurturing resonance

with the human voice and, by implication,

the more subtle realms

of meaning and things spiritual.

Join me in my campaign to bring the conservation of Nature
and the best of classical music together. The sonosphere—the
sea of sounds which surrounds us—deserves as much attention and
care as our water and air!


Generative chaos is the rich
polyphony of simultaneous orders of movement,
characteristic of, for example, both living sound
and water;

Degenerative chaos occurs when movements,
natural or otherwise, contradict, that is—speak
against, or fight against, one another. The most
extreme example is perhaps human conflict once
it is energized by absolute belief;

Passive chaos—perhaps the most difficult of the
three to understand—is the mysterious state of
motionlessness or silence which is full of the
potential energy of neutrality.
