Some Zappa quotes from this documentary

  • "Think of a chemical compound which had part of its ingredients being Beethoven’s 5th and “Louie Louie” at the same time, coexisting in the same universe and all part of the same substance."
  • "Why not? Nobody’s ever heard it. Let’s listen to it."
  • "What is that doing to your brain? The nice chord and a smashing glass at the same time. One thing indicates violence, the other thing indicates rest. How does your emotional mechanism in your body compute this audio artefact that you’ve been confronted with? What do you do with it? Let’s find out."
