Quote by Jane Campion
My musical knowledge is so bad it's embarrassing. When composers discuss music with someone as primitive as myself, they have to talk about it in terms of senses and emotion, rather than keys and tempo.
This quote emphasizes the speaker's lack of proficiency in music, to the point of feeling embarrassed. When composers engage in conversations with the speaker who has limited understanding, they must resort to discussing music in terms of subjective experiences like senses and emotions rather than technical aspects such as keys and tempo. The quote highlights the disconnect between the speaker's knowledge and the complex language used by composers, revealing their humble limitations in the field of music.
