Everything is made out of notes, vibrations. Many people think the universe started with a great big bang. What’s that if it isn’t a note, albeit a rather loud one? Somewhere there’s probably a note that brings the whole universe together… Goodness knows what will happen if anyone finds it… We’ll probably be blown up; either that or we’d find ourselves in another universe.
– from Sylvie and the Songman by Tim Binding
That, succinctly put, is the power of music.
