Firstly, music is an art form whose medium’s sound is silence. Its common element is pitch (which governs melody). Music exists because people are living organisms, and biology is the study of living organisms.
Music touches us emotionally, where words alone cannot. Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a fuel tank. Sentimental people call it inspirational, but what they mean is that music is a fuel. It is like a drink that you take when you are thirsty. It makes your throat moist because it always has a way of moving you, a force of nature that takes away all the loneliness that you are going through. When you are lost music brings you back to life.
Music is the universal language of mankind. It is an incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common. It is a melody that plays on and on. Some people call it a symphony because it has beautiful sounds that are always through it all. Music speaks to you. It interacts with you in a mysterious way.
Music takes the pain away and turns it into something beautiful. Into something that people connect to and that’s what is good about music. It changes you in an unnoticeable way. Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without. Music lives forever. That is so much stronger than death. It interacts with you eternally if you believe it and love it. Music is stronger than time and that’s its strength. It holds together when nothing else can.
When I hear music I fear no danger. I feel invincible. I see no foe. When I hear music I am related to the earliest and latest times. Music can change the world because it can change people. Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends. Music is the moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
