Above, a 1934 plaque from the Big Apple Night Club at West 135th Street and Seventh Avenue in Harlem. Discarded as trash in 2006. Now a Popeye's fast food restaurant on Google Maps.

“Music is how we decorate time”

"Art is how we decorate space. Music is how we decorate time” is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“There’s nothing so sublime as Jeff Buckley covering an Alex Chilton song. Music is how we decorate Time” was posted on Twitter by AJay McL on August 15, 2014. Alex Chilton (1950-2010) wrote the song “Kanga-Roo” that was covered by Jeff Buckley, but “Music is how we decorate Time” is not a lyric in that song.

“Art is how we decorate space; music is how we decorate time” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on January 14, 2015. This was submitted by “aclayhutchings,” but the author’s name is now deleted.

“‘Art is how we decorate space, Music is how we decorate time’ - Jean-Michel Basquait” was posted on Reddit—Quotes on February 9, 2015. “‘Art is how we decorate space. Music is how we decorate time.’ -Jean Michel Basquiat” was posted on Twitter by Lo on February 19, 2015. New York City-born artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) never said it.


Wikipedia: Jean-Michel Basquiat
Jean-Michel Basquiat (French: [ʒɑ̃ miʃɛl baskja]; December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent. Basquiat first achieved fame as part of SAMO, a graffiti duo who wrote enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the late 1970s, where rap, punk, and street art coalesced into early hip-hop music culture.

Art is how we decorate space; music is how we decorate time.
EDIT: Wow, thank you for the gold! I’m glad this thought resonated with you (hehe). I made a snoovatar reddit.com/u/aclayhutchings/snoo

So, yeah, my life is kinda awesome now.

EDIT 2: So I excitedly told my mom that I made it to the front page of reddit. She went on to check and started reading people’s comments. She got very upset at certain… vociferously negative remarks. I then had to explain to her how the internet works.

What about dance?

Dance is how we decorate matter? Adding the temporal element, dance is how we decorate velocity/momentum?
Science never sounds nearly as beautiful :(

Exploring Jean-Michel Basquiat’s eclectic musical influences
‘Time Decorated: The Musical Influences of Jean-Michel Basquiat’ looks at how jazz, bebop, hip-hop, no wave, and punk affected the iconic late artist’s life and work

26 January 2021
Text Emily Dinsdale
“Art is how we decorate space, music is how we decorate time,” artist Jean-Michel Basquiat famously said. It’s impossible to underestimate the influence of music on the work of this celebrated artist, whose paintings incorporated a hugely diverse range of cultures references.
