This quote by Toru Takemitsu speaks to the power of music to bring people together and to provide convenience and solace. Music has the ability to transcend language and cultural barriers, allowing people to get in touch with each other and with something higher than themselves. Music can be used to express feelings, to inform stories, and to create a sense of community. It can be utilized to commemorate, to grieve, and to heal. Music can be a form of prayer, a way to get in touch with the divine and to reveal gratitude and respect. It can be a way to reveal joy, grief, and hope. Music can be a way to get in touch with the spiritual world and to find peace and solace. Music can be a type of prayer, a method to get in touch with the divine and to express our inmost feelings and desires.
"We worked very hard to make the lyrics suit the music. I can't, like Elton John, for example, compose by lyrics. Elton has a great talent for that. Whatever you give him, including your questions, he composes in half an hour and makes a great song out of it"
