|Thoughts On Music & Listening|
Just some reflections over music that I wanted to record and share.
Listening to music is all about perceiving and arranging wavelengths; if the experience is
bliss, your are doing it right. Often, simplicity of structure makes it easier to sink into
music and swim wherever you wish.
Random Album Title
As I said, it is good if you enjoy what you listen to, no matter whatever a second's
opinion over it. Just dive into those beats and melodies, period.
Music taste can sometimes (not necessarily always) reflect a bit of the listener. If
you tend to enjoy simple, blunt, banal music, there's a chance that your mind works
in a similar way; you either have a tendency for ephemeral sensations that might
often lack in substance, or don't mind music that much. If, on the other hand, you
lean towards intricate material, you might tend to be a more reflexive (and maybe
convoluted) individual - either that, or a tad bit pretentious.
Frequently, music does not need an explicit topic other than music itself. That is often
the charm of it: to get carried away by those gentle wavelengths. More so, music can
give a more powerful message when, instead of forcing a message, delivers it naturally
between (or beneath) the arranging of notes.
Elegance in presentation is a favorable feature that grants class and credibility. Passion
and honesty go together as well (and tend to be correlated). To find all of the
aforementioned features in a song or album is to find irrefutably sterling music.
An unconventional route music can often become a pleasant surprise. It frequently
works better for transportating one to whatever landscape or mindset the artist is
Enjoy Eternal Bliss
There are no rules in how to deliver (or what to deliver). It is perfectly admissible to
observe how an environment is built and soared piece by piece in a refined style; the
pinacle of the experience arrives when you can finally see the structure finally stand,
complete, in all its splendor.
On the other hand, you could get everything directly shoved in your face for a
visceral, powerful, sincere and passionate impact.

Investing a lot of resources into designing and constructing the ordering of
melodies/dissonances can have its risks. When the music's foundations are complex and
devious, it can both confuse and exhaust the listener, hindering the delight experience
itself in exchange for an elaborated message.
Because of that, some artists tend to return to the roots of music itself, settling for
sincerity and simplicity, and an enhancement of what we call passion.
If an album has the capability to both translate you into a landscape and make the
journey itself a blissful experience, then it is a success.
It is interesting when artists combine other ways of expression (such as poetry) with
music; the same goes for certain fields of knowledge. They all have the power to add
up and turn music into something superior.
Reach Beyond the Sun
I appreciate it when an artist tries to deliver motivational and soaring messages that
strengthen one's faith it whatever cause. I cherish it even more when he succees.
Everyone That Dragged You Here
Yes, a revitalizing (and perhaps rejuvenescent) song earns my listening.
Remain In Light
There are no conventions or rules over music taste. After all, I guess it is made for
one's delight, and is only a portion of a large spectrum that involves all means of
human expression. It is a beautiful part of it, though.
|Feel free to comment and stuff|
|some very interesting thoughts here, as well as some awesome albums.|
'If you tend to enjoy simple, blunt, banal music, there's a chance that your mind works in a similar way'
i don't know if i'm reading this wrong but it does come off as rather patronising
|Music is good, I listen to it a lot|
|@oltna you're not, like, deep enough|
@jeff I should have rewritten that paragraph, now that I read it again. Oh well
|Cool list idea. I wish more users would do something like this instead of "Radiohead Ranked" every day.|
|was this a school assignment?|
|I too like music|
|@Ending thanks, coincidentally I've been spending way less time in this site haha|
@Calc nah, just had a bit of free time and felt like writing something for the fun of it
|something i've noticed about myself with both music and tv shows/movies is that i can really only feel emotional over things that i can't take too seriously|
like with cowboy bebop there were 'emotional' moments but it's not like i ever cried watching it
but with doctor who it's so cheesy and i get pretty damn emotional over it
same with devin townsend's music, can't take that seriously just because he's goofy and his lyrics are generally pretty bad, and i feel much more emotion with him than with most other music
then again devy is pretty good at conveying emotion, no matter how cheesy
|Wow terrible thread|
|what a great night to post this too|
|oh, and the point of that was sort of the 'music taste reflecting personality' thing. i don't take many things very seriously in life and yeah something with that probably|
