For music to remain and continue to be made, we must take it in our hands in order to ensure its survival. Without musicians, music will not be heard. Without a person behind the instrument, the instrument will remain silent. A keyboard, drum machine, or sampler is just a paperweight without a living being controlling it. This graphic was created to depict this idea. Even though there may be many musical devices available as seen on the front of the shirt, they will remain to be devices. We are the music makers and it's our job to take those devices and create music. The quote on the rear of the shirt points this out perfectly.
