Not going to get into the philosophical inaccuracies here, but I would
simply like to state that many musicians find a meaningful connection
between music (making and listening) and various forms of mysticism.
Why, our two main looper gods (Fripp and Torn) both use
mystical/philosophical terminology to express what they do, in addition
to the actual tones they produce.
