Singing: a way to hurl yourself into space
I absolutely love this quote.
Peter Sellars, theater producer:
"Vocal music is an attempt to take the whole human being and project it into space. It is the ultimate gesture of getting out of yourself. You take a part of you that is most private, most personal, most inward, and you hurl it out into space---you project it as far as you can.
That gesture of opening this whole region of the body results in an enormous spiritual release, and is felt by other people with tremendous impact."
---Bill Moyers, "A World of Ideas II" (Doubleday)
