Music is the silence between the notes

Debussy said that and he was spot on, describing these constant predictive actions happening in our heads. We like the music we can predict. Each following note is a variation that flows logically and we expect it. If it is what we expect, we like it.

For the sake of bubbling up I’ll leave a link to an article in which I try to round up the idea of our constant work to predict the future.

I write so you feel like you’ve just had an idea. It’s a nice feeling.
