Quote #14

(In an argument over whether music is a language, being a system of symbols often used to convey messages, Jany argues that it isn't, and Mr. Oliver argues that it is.)

Mr. Oliver: There are many examples of music being used as a language, for example in Africa they use a drum that is stored the entire language of the people.

Jany: But that isn't music.

Mr. Oliver: How do you define music?

Jany: A system of sound that doesn't represent language.
