I don't like psychology whatsoever: using music like a drug is
stupid. One shouldn't do that : music is the product of the highest
human
intelligence, and of the best senses, the listening senses and of
imagination and intuition. And as soon as it becomes just a means for
ambiance, as we say, environment, or for being used for certain
purposes,
then music becomes a whore, and one should not allow that really; one
should
not serve any existing demands or in particular not commercial values.
That
would be terrible: that is selling out the music. - Stockhausen
