To me, music is much more then just sound, much more then notes and words. When I tell people this, they ask, “How is that possible?” And I understand them asking because technically, in the most scientific sense, music isn’t anything more then sound. But somewhere in the process of its creation, it becomes more then that. Maybe it’s one point in the process: it’s conception, someone putting their feelings into lyrical form; it’s recording, a musician pouring his soul into a performance; or the listening, someone hearing a song and being able to relate to it.
When you listen to music, something happens. It changes and affects your feeling and can inspire, motivate, and energize you. In this world of cynics and terrorism, I believe music is one of the few true miracles.
Long live music!!
