"Overcome with delight or overcome with grief, a person howls. A child listens to the modulations and textures in her parent’s voice. Life is so good that one person is unable to keep from dancing, and another is unable to keep from joining them with clapping and stomping. Is music-making the enactment of a desire to return to those moments?" — Ian Nagoski from the liner notes
