Well-written words are music.
Composed Quotes : pic 001554789
There is the music that we make, and the music that makes us.
Composed Quotes : pic 000017742
In your works, you have realized what I, albeit in uncertain form, have so greatly longed for in music. The independent progress through their own destinies, the independent life of the individual voices in your compositions is exactly what I am trying to find in my paintings.

The artist must express the summation of his feeling, knowing and believing through the unity of his life and work.
Composed Quotes : pic 001858075
I compose my pieces with a formula that I created myself.
Composed Quotes : pic 000793838
The composer does not sit around and wait for an inspiration to walk up and introduce itself ... Making music is actually little else than a matter of invention aided and abetted by emotion. In composing we combine what we know of music with what we feel.
Composed Quotes : pic 001467017
Composing is a slowed-down improvisation; often one cannot write fast enough to keep up with the stream of ideas.

Composing is like making love to the future.
Composed Quotes : pic 001604094
Letters orchestrated into a song of words create the symphony of a novel.
Composed Quotes : pic 001429888
A Composer who hears sounds will try to find a notation for sounds. One who has ideas will find one that expresses his ideas, leaving their interpretation free, in confidence that his ideas have been accurately and concisely notated.
Composed Quotes : pic 000883106
Music is never stationary; successive forms and styles are only like so many resting-places - like tents pitched and taken down again on the road to the Ideal.
Composed Quotes : pic 001138638
This recognition, in real life, of a rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation, being a simultaneous coalition - an organic coordination of visual elements.
Composed Quotes : pic 000475888
The other thing in composition is opening up the unconscious.
Composed Quotes : pic 000751300
The composition of a single melody is born out of a bit of text, perhaps the first line, but it can also be the entire strophe; it can even be the poem's overall form.
Composed Quotes : pic 001227344
By the combination of lines and colors, under the pretext of some motif taken from nature, I create symphonies and harmonies that represent nothing absolutely real in the ordinary sense of the word but are intended to give rise to thoughts as music does.
Composed Quotes : pic 001474168
I am now satisfied that the future music of this country must be founded upon what are called negro melodies. This must be the real foundation of any serious and original school of composition to be developed in the United States.
Composed Quotes : pic 001010110
From an inimitable timepiece to an immeasurable masterpiece, there is meditation perfected
Composed Quotes : pic 000848954
We are God's productions, His compositions.
Composed Quotes : pic 001009108
Music, art, and literature are inseparable for me. How does "composition" evolve in a music and art context? It's a question we can never answer: it only asks for more information and generates more questions.
Composed Quotes : pic 001323189
Composing is my life blood.
Composed Quotes : pic 000495134
My compositions spring from my sorrows. Those that give the world the greatest delight were born of my deepest griefs.
Composed Quotes : pic 000466107
Composing gives me great pleasure ... there is nothing that surpasses the joy of creation, if only because through it one wins hours of self-forgetfulness, when one lives in a world of sound.
Composed Quotes : pic 000367552
All art constantly aspires to the condition of music ... In its ideal, consummate moments, the end is not distinct from the means, the form from the matter, the subject from the expression; they inhere in and completely saturate each other ...
Composed Quotes : pic 001500772
The unheard sounds came through, and each melodic line existed of itself, stood out clearly from all the rest, said its piece, and waited patiently for the other voices to speak.
Composed Quotes : pic 001651940
To write a symphony is, for me, to construct a world.
Composed Quotes : pic 000647586
So called "composition" becomes a personal thing, to be developed along with technique, as a personal way of seeing.
Composed Quotes : pic 000633878
I have created a new genre. It is a soulful creation that comes straight from my heart.
Composed Quotes : pic 000536352
Unprovided with original learning, unformed in the habits of thinking, unskilled in the arts of composition, I resolved to write a book.

Melody is the essence of music.
Composed Quotes : pic 000914259
I'd like to play for you one of my compositions, my only composition.
Composed Quotes : pic 001256113
It is the melody which is the charm of music, and it is that which is most difficult to produce. The invention of a fine melody is a work of genius.
Composed Quotes : pic 000118150
Music is indivisible. The dualism of feeling and thinking must be resolved to a state of unity in which one thinks with the heart and feels with the brain.
Composed Quotes : pic 000466059
Music - so different from painting - is the art which we enjoy most in company with others. A symphony, presented in a room with one other listener, would please him but little.
Composed Quotes : pic 001680208
Made up, as one makes up the better part of life ... making oneself up; ... creating an exquisite amusement ...
Composed Quotes : pic 001129536
Heartfelt, inspired songwritingwith a delivery both biting and assured.
Composed Quotes : pic 000669485
There is music wherever there is harmony, order and proportion; and thus far we may maintain the music of the spheres; for those well ordered motions, and regular paces, though they give no sound unto the ear, yet to the understanding they strike a note most full of harmony.
Composed Quotes : pic 000884719
Who among us has not dreamt, in moments of ambition, of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical without rhythm and rhyme, supple and staccato enough to adapt to the lyrical stirrings of the soul, the undulations of dreams, and sudden leaps of consciousness.
Composed Quotes : pic 001346258
You are lyricist, me a composer - you and I make a complete song.
Composed Quotes : pic 000204216
The performing musician was now expected to write and create for two very different spaces: the live venue, and the device that could play a recording or receive a transmission. Socially and acoustically, these spaces were worlds apart. But the compositions were expected to be the same!
Composed Quotes : pic 000617322
Usually people think that it is the musicians who create the music, but in fact it is music who creates the musicians.
Composed Quotes : pic 000078658
Degas is a master of creating compositions that don't look composed.
Composed Quotes : pic 000697194
You've made something grand, but it will be grander if it has feeling and beauty and harmony.
Composed Quotes : pic 000568422
Never compose anything unless the not composing of it becomes a positive nuisance to you.
Composed Quotes : pic 000102229
We are all an instrument with a special notation to our individual identity. When you incorporate many beautiful notes together, you envelop a harmonious orchestra.
Composed Quotes : pic 000519593
Cinematic and symphonic: this is a compelling story revealed in a sequence of voices that are as pitch-perfect as they are irresistible. This is a wonderfully impressive debut: tender, muscled and unforgettable.
Composed Quotes : pic 000053144
We give to others only peripheral improvisations. The plots, and themes of the music, like the plots and themes of our life, never alchemized into words, existed only in a state of music, stirring or numbing, exalting or despairing, but never named.
Composed Quotes : pic 001014804
Composing is sort of an intuitive act. You have to put yourself in the right frame of mind.
Composed Quotes : pic 000576725
Poetry is composing for the breath.
Composed Quotes : pic 001107222
Poetry, therefore, we will call Musical Thought.
Composed Quotes : pic 001018376
Sometimes I was so busy being tuned in to outside ideas, expectations, and demands, I failed to hear the unique music in my soul. I forfeited my ability to listen creatively to my deepest self, to my own God within.
Composed Quotes : pic 001052809
The new kind of music seems to create not from the heart but from the head. Its composers think rather than feel. They have not the capacity to make their works exalt - they meditate, protest, analyze, reason, calculate and brood, but they do not exalt.
Composed Quotes : pic 001064470
This music, transmitted by loud-speakers, made a masterpiece appear like an amateurish attempt at composition by nimcompoop
Composed Quotes : pic 000817259
... the cardinal labor of composition, which is excision ...
Composed Quotes : pic 001283743
A songwriter's supreme challenge is being complex and simple at the same time
Composed Quotes : pic 001077504
I am composing like a god, as if it simply had to be done as it has been done.
Composed Quotes : pic 000836057
A piece of music is an experience to be taken by itself.
Composed Quotes : pic 000753252
Music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry; music, without the idea, is simply music; the idea, without the music, is prose, from its very definitiveness.
Composed Quotes : pic 001675137
Composition is notation of distortion of what composers think they've heard before. Masterpieces are marvelous misquotations.
Composed Quotes : pic 001630166
The stuff of which masterpieces are made drifts about the world waiting to be clothed in words.
Composed Quotes : pic 000870485
I felt the sharp sting of emptiness and solitude that you feel so acutely and with such internal sorrow and wonder whenever music is performed well.
Composed Quotes : pic 000834449
The sweetest softest melody, as good a sound as the laughter of a pretty girl, or your mother calling you to dinner.
Composed Quotes : pic 000831659
When you write ,it's like braiding your hair. Taking a handful of coarse unruly strands and attempting to bring then unity.
Composed Quotes : pic 001092398
Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven.
Composed Quotes : pic 000492756
We each are artists of the self, creating a collage -- a new and original work of art -- out of scraps and fragments of identifications. The people with whom we identify are, positively or negatively, always important to us. Our feelings toward them are, in some way, always intense.
Composed Quotes : pic 000571925
I heard a thousand blended notes, While in a grove I sate reclined, In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts Bring sad thoughts to the mind. To her fair works did Nature link The human soul that through me ran; And much it grieved my heart to think What man has made of man. Through
Composed Quotes : pic 000409245
Our lives are songs; God write the words And we set them to music at pleasure; And the song grows glad, or sweet or sad, As we choose to fashion the measure.
Composed Quotes : pic 001012045
Composing's not voluntary, you know. There's no choice, you're not free. You're landed with an idea and you have responsibility to that idea.
Composed Quotes : pic 000972542
Lapped in poetry, wrapped in the picturesque, armed with logical sentences and inalienable words.
Composed Quotes : pic 000556064
The melody of music!
Composed Quotes : pic 000823376
We don't make music - it makes us.
Composed Quotes : pic 000807232
The sounds proceeding from the instruments of symphonic music seem to be the very organs of the mysteries of creation; for they reveal, as it were, the primal stirrings of creation which brought order out of chaos long before the human heart was there to behold them.
Composed Quotes : pic 000289461
Her graphite pencil scratches the thick paper and it is the soundtrack to my bliss. That, and her sound - dissonant, aching. Her breath and heartbeat and pulse are my new favorite symphony; I'm beginning to learn which notes will play when, and to interpret them.
Composed Quotes : pic 000197272
They scattered with no melody, no harmony, no rhythm to hold them. If music was emotion and emotion came from thought, then this was the scream of chaos, of the irrational, of the helpless, of man's self-abdication.
Composed Quotes : pic 001040090
Sentences take shape from the words that are stacked on top of one another in the dusty chambers of my mind, waiting to be used--words that now peel off my lips, trembling as they come to life.
Composed Quotes : pic 000967631
Music is of two kinds: one petty, poor, second-rate, never varying, its base the hundred or so phrasings which all musicians understand, a babbling which is more or less pleasant, the life that most composers live.
Composed Quotes : pic 000296239
From a very early period of my life I have derived the highest enjoyment from listening to music, especially to melody, which is to me the most pleasing form of composition.
Composed Quotes : pic 001095664
Perhaps our task in this shaky, fast-changing, bewildering world in which we live is to make music, at first with all that we have, and then, when that is no longer possible, to make music with what we have left.
Composed Quotes : pic 001803133
To find a form that accommodates the mess, that is the task of the artist now.
Composed Quotes : pic 000383874
All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music. For while in all other kinds of art it is possible to distinguish the matter from the form, and the understanding can always make this distinction, yet it is the constant effort of art to obliterate it.
Composed Quotes : pic 000785613
When putting words together is good to do it with nicety and caution, your elegance and talent will be evident if by putting ordinary words together you create a new voice.
Composed Quotes : pic 000301216
It is conceivable that what is unified form to the author or composer may of necessity be formless to his audience.
Composed Quotes : pic 001198339
Sometimes you can define a composition or a couple of notes by the silence that goes around it.
Composed Quotes : pic 001334995
Creativity is a compilation of things we've seen.
Composed Quotes : pic 001378454
Today not even a universal fire could make the torrential poetic production of our time disappear. But it is exactly a question of production, that is, of hand-made products which are subject to the laws of taste and fashion.
Composed Quotes : pic 000312467
The adventure of composition is a mystery. The muse has her ways, she hides from you, comes for you in the middle of the night, at midday, at dawn. You must believe wholeheartedly in this divine power. Its an elusive gift that can appear at any time, anywhere. Artists are in awe of it.
Composed Quotes : pic 001045016
Writing is a perpetual choice between a thousand expressions, none of which satisfies me, none of which, above all, satisfies me without the others. Yet I ought to know that only music permits a succession of chords.
Composed Quotes : pic 000613920
Whatever you do in life, there's content and form; only those two put together create special meaning of a great work of art or great interpretation of music or a great story that you tell.
Composed Quotes : pic 001823826
If the composer withholds more than we anticipate, we experience a delicious falling sensation; we feel we have been torn from a stable point on the musical ladder and thrust into the void.
Composed Quotes : pic 001126090
I am writing something which I find satisfying and which I am prepared to put my name to as a composer.
Composed Quotes : pic 000701164
On the stage Tristen bent over the piano, his fingers swift and sure, his blond hair gleaming under the spotlight. I glanced around at the audience, watching their faces, gratified that they were as captivated as I was by the dark, thunderous song that Tristen conjured.
Composed Quotes : pic 001820423
He is a songwriter Composing notes that hold together eternity
Composed Quotes : pic 001606184
The composer opens the cage door for arithmetic, the draftsman gives geometry its freedom.
Composed Quotes : pic 001135823
Art feasts upon its maker
Composed Quotes : pic 000984279
Normally, when people compose for film, you give them the film, and they look at it, and they compose it.
Composed Quotes : pic 001744078
His voice just became the music her soul yearned to embrace, to compose the right notes to make their songs come together again, as easily and beautifully as they had before.
Composed Quotes : pic 001253719
The creative process is beautiful and magical thing. Whether its a song, a radio story, or a novel, it all springs from the same place in the heart.
