Your circular rhythms are infinite, and they play in my head every day.

Earlier today, before hearing the news about Mr. Liebezeit, I was also thinking of a quote that I think of at least once a week, from the documentary above at 23:53, when Can's late guiarist Michael Karoli says, "We have incorporated all the external elements, not only by force, but deliberately. So the music was good as soon as every single sound, or noise, a hooting car for example, was fully integrated into the music. Automatically. Then we knew that we were playing well. If noise was disturbing then we knew that it was the music that was wrong, and not the noise. I think this is important." You're damn right it is, MK. Such a great band.
