Valdim Zilverim - 55

"Every sound, every phenomenon and object of life has its own vibration. For me, music is also every sound of nature - wind, rain, street noise, actors' speech on stage. As I live, I try to feel these vibrations, to understand them through my heart and mind. Be inside this world with all your inner world. It happens that there is, say, "creative diffusion". However, all these vibrations must be passed through the heart. When I write, there is a "backward" process, from my inner heart vibrations I find the necessary music vibrations - only through the heart. "
