...quotations I like


Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit (Nothing comes from Nothing)

[490 BC]

Marshall Mcluhan

If it works, it's obsolete.


Norman White

Mistakes helps us transcend the original idea.


David Tudor

have a voice which was unique and not just an instrument of

reproduction, but an instrument unto itself.


Kim Cascone

The medium is no longer the message in glitch music:

the tool has became the message.


Walter Benjamin

lacking in one element: its presence in time and space,

its unique extistence at the place where it happens to be.


Iman Moradi

...they exhibit themselves in the surface of other media

perhaps as a layer of visual communication that shows something

Rosalind Krauss

form an external object -an other- and invest it in the Self.


Marshall Mcluhan

First we shape our tools and then tools shape us.


John Glenn

Literally, a glitch is a spike or change in voltage

in an electrical current.


David Tudor

I think of analog technology as a medium. It certainly sounds

very different from computer-produced sound, so I would say that

some works are realizable with different media but others are not.


David Zicarelli

I would only observe that in most high-profile gigs,

failure tends to be far more interesting to the audience

than succes.


Jonas Salk

Life is an error-making and an error-correcting process.


Zen Proverb

If you understand, things are just as they are;

if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
