Preface 

As the light fades and silence falls,

the complex map of dots and lines stare back fiercely.

You stop and close your eyes

until the heart ceases its pounding and breathing calms.

Only then does the mind stop its endless wandering.

The first note cuts through and the world changes.

Body, mind and sound suddenly fuse in perfect unity.

Time itself seems to freeze, as if it too is lost in sound.

Then the pages run out, like a fire without fuel.

The world begins to refocus,

and in an instant the moment is gone.
