Ways of Making People Move: representation in music

"Notation is a way of making people move. If you lack other ways like aggression or persuasion. The notation should do it. This is the most rewarding aspect of work on a notation. Trouble is: Just as you find your sounds are too alien, intended 'for a different culture', you make the same discovery about your beautiful notation: no one is willing to understand it. No one moves."

Cornelius Cardew, originally published in Contact no. 26 (Spring 1983), pp. 4-12.
Cardew, 1971, Treatise Handbook (London: Peters Edition, 1971), p. iii.
