Memory & The Encyclopedia of Sounds

[M]emory works in such amazing ways … I think each one of us is a walking encyclopedia of all the sounds we’ve ever heard in our lives … What they call forth, the kind of communication they call forth is music … And the lovely thing with the music is that we don’t have to be limited by the way that words are limited by our rational minds.
