“the unfolding of something beautiful or dramatic over time”

“Scientists whose specialty is cosmology tell us that time and space are inextricably linked…

“You can’t have one without the other.  They say that if you could go back far enough, nearer the Big Bang, time and space would merge…”

“…They wouldn’t be separate dimensions…”

“Being on the same continuum, they are relative, not independently fixed…”

“Musicians are especially sensitive to time, since their art form manipulates its sonic materials within time…”

“…as a sculptor does her marble within space…”

“Of course, music happens in space, too—it happens someplace…”

“But, the primary attention is given to unfolding something beautiful or dramatic over time…”

“…You can’t take in music without taking time.”

— Paul Johnston, Artist-lecturer, Carnegie Mellon University
