Patrick Valentino, composer





    I THINK MUSIC SHOULD MOVE PEOPLE is the
   way many composers begin their artistic statements,   
   and while I agree, the question composers must answer
   is how.



   We write in an infinite language, play in an infinite
   sandbox, and for that we should all be grateful. But
   composition goes beyond oneself - as sonic excitations 
   must be perceived by another, any music by its very   
   nature is communicative.
We compose the tree falling
   in the woods whose sound must be validated by
   another's ears.



   What we chose to say is up to us.
   How we chose to say it determines who will listen.
