„Music so wishes to be heard that sometimes it calls on unlikely characters to give it voice, and ears. This wishing-to-be heard calls into existence the Performance Event; where music, musician and audience may come together as one, in communion. This communion has six different forms of being and experiencing itself (plus an invisible seventh); and these forms, or principles, are simultaneously present within the Performance.
:I - When people get together with music, something happens.
:II - In a performance, things come together, mysteriously; and go better than we might anticipate; and better than we deserve.
:III - A performance can take on a life and character of its own.
:IV - Any one performance is a multiplicity of performances.
:V - The possible is possible.
:VI - The impossible is possible.
:The Seventh Principle resides within Silence.
:Trust the event.“
— Robert Fripp English guitarist, composer and record producer 1946
