Yep. The space between the notes.

Leaving space is the essense of composition.

Or add to...
I quoted you the other night, but I gave credit
We were playing a train game and often when we build to a city we sing a few bars of a song connected to that city IE) coming into Los Angeles...
So someone built into Kansas City and sang "They got some crazy little women there and I'm gonna get me one" - someone else then sange "They got some crazy little women there and I'm gonna get me some" - then I said - "Or how Fred does it..."They got some crazy little women there and I'm gonna get me one, or two, or three, or four, or five"

For some schools of art (it's more true of a Japanese calligrapher than of Jackson Pollack). And, among other things; there's more to art than that alone.

True, but that ignores the "what to put in" side of the equation. About the best I've seen is Thomas Mann's "A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people."
