Besides merely some pleasure that we get out of the combinations of pitches together and lines, I think that there is some satisfaction that we get in the fact of having this diffuse thing organized very concretely and put onto a frame and have it actually decided.
By the visual pattern, but mostly I'm guided entirely by my ear, what I hear.
But in the end, music is ultimately an aural art, pure and simple. Leo Orns
