What role does music play in your life?
Music is such a powerful tool, it evokes images, feelings, and emotions of all types. People listen for many reasons; some to block out the world around them, others simply wish to be entertained by the melody.
Being a visual person allows me to draw creative energy from listening to it, I have a wide range of tunes I enjoy. My dad played the violin and my sister the piano, it gave me an early appreciation both instruments. When I listen, it inspires me to write, and I feel encouraged to work on my many art projects. Images flow through my mind and the story unfolds.
I am particularly fond of movie soundtracks, they help to draw out the emotions, and add substance to my work. “Schindler’s List” is one I listen to from time to time, the music is hauntingly beautiful, the story one of desperation and courage.
Or I may be working on something lighter, and listen to the music from “Up”
My choices are diverse, I’m full of surprises. :0) Have a great day everyone.
