I might be wrong is my attempt to affirm what I have always hinted to myself: that being on the right side of every question is detrimental to art.
Several movements of this piece are based on the sculptures of Juan Muñoz, whose works invite participation by the viewer, but prevent physical engagement with the space bound by the work. Many of his sculptures are of people holding silent conversations, physically distanced from the viewer. The beauty of Muñoz's works is their ability to shift the subject of the sculptures from the figures themselves (who become simple materials) to the viewer himself. Isn't this also the purpose of music?
