music is ……what? In his ongoing video art work of “speaking portraits,” artist/poet George Quasha puts this impossible, but unavoidable, question before musicians and composers of all kinds and in many places, who let us in on their private space of art definition. This intimate view of speaking faces, each filling the screen, shows how different it is for artists/poets/musicians to say what art, poetry or music is than for others (critics, historians, philosophers, viewers). For a particular artist, art may not only be an object, a thing historically defined, but something close to the core, perhaps even a singular event. Here we gain unique access to its nature in the person speaking.
