Everyone loves music right? Hands up all of you who do… good, good. For anyone who doesn’t appreciate music (and I’m not being fussy here – from classical through rock to pop and hip-hop) I feel truly sorry for you, as you’re missing out on a wonderful experience.
Music can lift your spirits, push you to higher planes or even bring you down to earth with a bump. The person listening matters just as much as much as the musician – how you perceive, how you feel the music changes the experience. Imagine watching a movie where the musical cues are reversed – the hero is backed by sinister music, and the villain greeted by a triumphal chorus – and think just how strange it would feel.
Of course, I’m terribly biased in these matters. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I used to be a musician. I still am I suppose, but sadly no longer actively playing in a band (musical differences, thanks for asking). There really is nothing to quite match the feeling of performing live on stage, to a crowd (okay, pair) of cheering fans, and having your latest musical masterpiece go down well. Writing music with other people is also indescribably wonderful, so I encourage everyone to pick up an instrument – it doesn’t matter what – and get out there and make some music.
