________ Paint Song

Performance by Julie Vayssière
With Kumisolo, Sans Sebastien and Damien Airault

“There’s music in the sighing of a reed; There’s music in the gushing of a rill; There’s music in all things, if men had ears1. Good music is not wrong, and goes straight to the depths of the soul to seek the sorrow that devours us2. If we want to know a people, we must listen to their music.3. Music must humbly seek to please; the extreme complication is the opposite of art.4. Music is the framework around the silence5.The beauty of music – like the beauty of light – is that of speed, of mobility, of the elusive.6. Music is important … the only thing that unites young people. A kind of Esperanto7. Music is the same everywhere. It brings people together. It feels good. It’s a common language8. I think I like silence more and more and music less and less. Silence has its own music: dog barking, passing cars, clanging objects, rubbing fabrics9I don’t know anything about music. In my line you don’t have to!10 he vase gives form to emptiness, and music to silence11. Music begins where the power of words ends12.”
