“I guess, in general, I don’t find people despicable or deserving of hatred and contempt because, as far as I can see, people suffer, and it is suffering that is the underlying cause for much of the wrongdoing in the world.
Suffering lies beneath our most destructive behaviour.
This is why music is important. Music at its very essence is a force for good. It has an inherent moral magnitude.
At its core music has the capacity to improve matters, to reform the condition of the heart by appealing to the better angels of our nature.
This is its rightful and sacred duty.
Music makes us do better. Be better.
It helps release us from our suffering and points us toward the good.“
