What is Music?

What is music? This question occupied my mind for hours last night before I fell asleep. The very existence of music is wonderful, I might even say miraculous.

Its domain is between thought and phenomena. Like a mediator, it hovers between spirit and matter, related to both and yet differing from each.

It is spirit, but it is spirit subject to the measurement of time.

It is matter, but it is matter that can be dispense with space.

~ Heinrich Heine
