I had a smashing time in Germany this weekend. There have been a few times in my life I got to hear music in a different way. You know when something clicks in your mind and you “get it”. The moments when you hear music you’ve heard many times and thought, “ehhh not my thing” and then later you think, “wow this is great”. It’s vital as a musician to stay open minded and push yourself into experiencing real life to it’s fullest. Remember that artists reflect the world around them.
“”The border between music and noise is always culturally defined—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place; in short, there is rarely a consensus … By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be.” – Jean-Jacques Nattiez (via Wikipedia)
The photo above by Leah Lockhart is titled, “You are what you hear.”. If that’s true then ask yourself what kind of music do you listen to. What does that make you?
