To be staged or not
To be felt not understood
Let tones from the others inspire your own.
Let the music flow out of you as if you were a kid.
Notation is only a reminder for certain states
never follow the signs but only their spirit.
In this score you do what is appropriate for you to do
and let the rest to the others. Always be in love!
— Claude Vivier
