I associate quality with the gravity consolidating musical goo into identity, or the pressure of being stared at (or through) by a piece of music. […] Quality means something entirely relational — everyone, at every stage, is implicated. […] Quality means empowerment. […] Even the most hermetic composers … have to own up to the fact that their music exceeds the capabilities of their solitary hands.
