I decided to call my music organized sound: and myself, not a musician, but a worker in rhythms, frequencies, and intensities. Indeed, to stubbornly conditioned ears, anything new in music has always been called noise. But after all, what is music but organized noises? And a composer, like all artists, is an organizer of disparate elements.  - Edgard Varèse, 1933
