Music is unique among the arts. It captures emotions and feelings and connects people to a deeper level. People can connect with a photo or a movie faster, but rarely to the degree that music does. It connects deep in a person’s roots, identifying with them with an emotion unlike any other form of communication or expression.
Music is life.
It’s hard to believe that a collection of sounds rules/dictates/commands/predominates/controls/influences/alters/ our lives in such a way that it can make us feel, think and live. These feelings are taken for granted by most people and others believe that songs are written just for them. But what is it that attaches us to this organic form of communication?
For some music brings them back to a past time, a place they miss and long for. For others, it takes them to the future where they can be who they want to be. Music is raw emotion transformed into sound. Music is a simple and complex form of communication that is effective and moving.
To me? Music is a way to bring out love, anger, sadness and joy. Music is a way to bring out each and every array of raw emotion humanly possible. To some, music is a way to release these feelings that would otherwise be ignored.
What does music mean to you? Once you’ve figured out it effects on you and where it take you, you’ll know more about who you are and what music and life really means to you. So go out and listen to your favorite artist, composer and/or singer. Then expand your horizon. There’s much more out there than you can experience… If you’ll only listen.
