Give any one thought
a push:
it falls down easily;
but the pusher
and the pushed
produce that entertainment
called a discussion.
Shall we have one later?
— John Cage, Lecture On Nothing

Where do melodies dwell? We might think the notes being played are the essence of a melody, but melodies are more than that. They are defined by tensions—at the edge of one shape (or pitch) as it transitions to another—and by permeability, a mutual influence that turns each pitch into something else. A melody is not just a succession of notes, it is the shifts and spaces between them.

— Ana Ruiz Valencia, curator and musician
