The Sound of Music
Posted by ilovesunsetsbythesea
What is in music that makes people love it?
There are people who listen to music when they are depressed, lonely, and alone. There is something in it that soothes their emotions… something strong that is able to go deep into their souls and mend it. Some listen to music when they are happy and glad; when they are angry and spiteful; or when they just want to pass time. Whatever situation we are in… wherever life takes us to… music is there to accompany us in our journey.
Music takes us into a world it creates in the composition so that when you close your eyes and listen carefully, you are drifted into that world. The tone of the music creates the mood in it. How it is being interpreted by the singer and the instrument players add to the mood it wants to relay.
It not only calms the soul and soothes it. It is also a means of communication. Music bridges the message of the composer to the people. It becomes a venue for the composer to say what he/she wants people to hear and as a means to where he/she puts in thoughts and ideas. It also serves as a channel into which they put their emotions for people to listen to. These are oftentimes also felt by people who are feeling the same emotions and by those who are willing to feel the same emotion that the composer wants to convey.
Music is a composer’s confidant and best friend. It is a window through which we can peek at their true self and to their soul. Through music, their message is laid out in the open and we are left to find out what it is.
Whatever type of music you listen to, I hope that you take time to really listen to what it is saying because that’s the only time we can truly appreciate its true beauty.
