The way through

by Dane Rudhyar

What is most significant in the musical development of a symphonic work is not the formal sequence of its many and varied tones, but the silence after the last one, the overtones which keep resonating in the souls of men. These overtones, this silence after all speech, the quality of the moment after the heart throbs no longer – this is ‘value’. To end in value is to leave, as a transcendent seed in the soul of the universe, a silence so meaningful that God will forever remember it. This divine remembrance is the substance of immortality.
