The System of Inner Creativity
The Battlefield of the Innermost Human-Qualities
The Influence of Classical Music
The Musical Handling of the Forces of Life
The natural and well-designed application of qualities of the human character in the garment of music is called motif-technique. Thereby, inner creativity is the practical mechanism through which the composer projects his inner cognition in the outward direction and transforms it into the audible experience.
When the musical creator is aware of this process in detail, and when he realizes the human faculties as the unity of his inner cognition, his inner experience, and inner hearing, then this art is called "motif-technique" in classical composition.
The range of influence of the motif-technique is the battlefield of the inner-human driving forces: the qualities of the composer, the qualities of the listener, and the qualities of man in general.
The deep influence of classical music is explained by the masterful handling of that field of experience of our innermost, individual existence which constitutes our true life and which reveals itself to the listener in the composition.
Thus, the motif-technique is the meaningful handling according to its own inherent laws of our innermost impulses of life, of those elements which are closer to life than the entire outer world of phenomena.
