A simple story of music and the power it has
Music, it’s one of the loves of my life.
I love to write, painting is also a passion. Nothing though comes close to music.
I can’t play an instrument or read music. My entire enjoyment of music comes from listening.
Over time my tastes have evolved and changed. I listen to and get lost in music which I wouldn’t have before.
As I get older classical, opera, country. They all fight for space and attention with rock, blues, jazz, and more.
It started for me when I was nine years old. I heard the song “supersonic” by the rock band Oasis. Suddenly the world went from back and white to full technicolor.
Nothing has been the same since. I spend my days lost in the music. Constantly exploring new and exciting sounds.
I also use music as a way to make sense of the world. If I want to replay a part of life in my mind, often I’ll use music as a tool to access those memories.
I’m fascinated by the science of it all. How those noises make sense of emotions, strengthen memories, or affect mood.
As I get older I feel a stronger connection to my life through music. Each of us has a soundtrack that accompanies our lives and all that goes with them.
I’m interested if you take the time to read this, what doe’s music do for you?
