When a narrative shatters, doors open, the ground is pulled away, the ceiling lifts off: crumbling narratives about the world that is so-and-so, music that has to sound this way, and me that is like that; best described with three words. Only in the disruption becomes visible what lies beyond, inbetween, behind. Something that is unpredictable, not chaotic, colourful, deep, not to be grasped by thought. Music can try to touch it.
