Beethoven said that music is deeper than philosophy, that's why I got that picture of Ludwig, Lookin' at that brother everyday.
So Ludwig what do you mean music is deeper than philosophy? He says well because in the end we finite creatures don't have a language or even a linguistic eloquence that can begin to be fully truthful to the experiences that we have, the short time we're here in time and space.
So therefore you need some sounds, even some noise. Organised noise. We need silence between the notes and the sounds, that get at the deeper truths of who we are.
Now that's not a statement against linguistic eloquence. but it's one that recognises the varieties of eloquence and therefore it requires a deep courage.
