What's the real importance of sound in our lives?
It seems words are the most valued sounds, hence the use of grammatical structures in music. But is language really the most important source of sound? Is language the only way to communicate? Is it the only way to understand the world, to be in it? Don't we lose touch with the world, and hence with ourselves, when we go and stay too much in the realm of language?
Music can remain in the abstract world of grammar and syntax, but why should it?
We can listen to the world. Life sounds.
