entry arrow1:40 AM | Music as a Means of Seeing Inside Ourselves



“Our culture deliberately drives people to focus outside [of themselves] so it can control them. Because if you can make people slaves of consumerism, slaves of success, slaves of status, you can manipulate them completely. So the role of music in our culture is crucial because music is the art most sacredly capable of helping us get in touch with the deepest passions and compassions, and the deepest understanding of our ourselves.”

~ religious scholar Andrew Harvey to pianist Seymour Bernstein in Ethan Hawke’s Seymour: An Introduction (2014)
