Thoughts on Silence and Being an Artist

Luigi Nono (composer, Venice/Italy)

There are many kinds of silence and it is an amazing form of expression. I find silence full of voices, thoughts, full of listening. In Venice I hear the stones, the color of the stones, I do hear the color of the water.

Clio Montrey (composer and singer, Canada):

When I was six years old, I asked for a keyboard. I wanted to create sounds. I never stopped.

The act of expressing my deepest thoughts, abstract or concrete, outwardly is irresistible. Often I carry imagery in my mind that needs to find a way out. It does so, onto paper and into sound.

Barbara Lüneburg (performer and artist, Germany):

I love immersing in the world through my art.
I enjoy the flow of being creative.
Authenticity is important to me.

Explore, shape and share.
That is who I feel I am – in a nutshell.
