Most music tries to control its circumstances

Most music tries to control its circumstances, just as most of us do. But there's another way to live. Accept indeterminacy as a principle, and you see your life in a new light, as a series of seemingly unreleated jewel-like stories within a dazzling setting of change and transformation. Recognise that you don't know where you stand, and you will begin to watch where you put your feet. That's when a path appears - Kay Larson, Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism, and the Inner Life of Artists
