Work introduction

Having been asked to write a text on Will Sound, here is one ...why...old duty...

Something will sound because it wishes to sound. The composer acts upon its will to be and notes down the spaces in between. There emerges a form, which is the imprint of the energy that demands a form for itself. An imprint? Yes, a trace, a coagulated shadow. Just as this text is an imprint of the will not to write it. I don't understand this.  Just as well... It's better to listen to the piece.  It is short.  It will sound...
