"You can convey things musically that you just can’t convey in words, because words are super limited. You can describe the box your feelings are in, but you can’t describe feelings. If you’re writing poetry, you can get closer. But with music, it bypasses the mind, it bypasses you thoughts, and it gets into places you might resist otherwise. Because words plug you into something someone else said; words are charged, positively or negatively. Whereas music really isn’t."
— Peter Kater, Boulder pianist/composer
