Matt Groening: "Well, what about noh music? Japanese?"
Frank Zappa: "I like that. That to me is like – it's science-fiction Webern music. You know, people doing erratic grunts followed by one drumbeat and all this oddly balanced stuff. It's like points of sound in time oddly balanced, and I have no idea what it's about or what will be going on onstage, but the sound of it is something I find interesting." (FZ in The Mother Of All Interviews (Part 2))
