"Whether I make them or not, there are always sounds to be heard and all of them are excellent."
    — John Cage, US composer of avant-garde music, from a speech in 1954    http://www.erstwhilerecords.com/articles/01_nytimes.html
I hear music
Mighty fine music 
The murmur of a morning breeze up there 
The rattle of the milkman on the stair 
Sure that's music 
Mighty fine music 
The singing of a sparrow in the sky 
The perking of the coffee right near by 

    — Billie Holiday ( Frank Loesser / Burton Lane)  (1940
