Talent is the most important thing in order to make music. It only
took a microphone and an orchestra to record the jewels that
Gardel and the Sinatra did. The technological variety that exists
now will produce a variety of art, and come when every kind of
music that will suit the customer. I want my music to be linked to
an object. Maybe because I come from a culture that valued the
object: to touch it, look it and have it. --Javier Limón, El Pais
