landscapes around a grey village with its black figures. Red is
added to this color range only when blood is shed as if it were the
only possible way of solving an absurd situation. Music, therefore,
is characterized by an apparent nonchalance, by a sort of very

implies the disappearance of our perceptual processes and the
gradual erosion to which we are submitted...`
