“The comprehension of sweet sound is our most indefinite conception. Music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry. Music without the idea is simply music. Without music or an intriguing idea, colour becomes pallor, man becomes carcase, home becomes catacomb, and the dead are but for a moment motionless.” (Edgar Allan Poe, nach Diktat verstorben. Zitiert nach Alan Parsons Project: “Tales Of Mystery And Imagination”, 1976.)
