“In the end, there are no listeners. At a concert, you are either in the hall, aware of people and extraneous noises, or within the space created by the music. In these rituals and ceremonies, all are blended with each other; their hearts with the drumming and all its subtleties; the rhythm of the brain with the pulsing of a single note, somewhere. The people are the action, are the sound, and invocation.”
