Music can have alot of meanings, here is a perspective from one mans musical spectra!
In philosophical perspectives of music is a key to alter your current way of thinking and simply being. It is a key to escape into other sides of existing. Your thoughts you have before listening to music is either stronger thoughts who now turns into feelings also, happy, sad, great, unhuman etc. The list of the feelings music can bring fourth to the human mind is very long. Or those thoughts you had are long gone when you start listening, this means music is able to remind you and it is able to make you forget and so on. As you can see music is something very powerful and can affect us in many ways, mostly depending on what your current state of mind is, if you for example are bored, the right type of music you like can easily turn that feeling into something fun. In other words music can be right for any type of mood – to lift you up, make you close your eyes, to make you start thinking, to let your mind drift away while focusing on whatever suits you for the time being.
The music has evolved through centuries but the music within the music is still the same, music is easier said a free market of feelings and you are able to make your choice freely and open-minded. For example if you choose to be sad that is what you will feel. But music contains a lot more then just feelings. I can say that there are things like messages, exhortations, preferred way of living and depending on your interpretation and how much you like the music. I think your personality will slightly change or evolve and change, for example if you like laid-back music you will eventually turn out to be a laid-back person. Because your music is who you are and what you prefer to listen to is a choice made inside of you by nobody else then yourself. The music within the music is what makes us feel and think while listening, it is that which appeals to us and tells us what tastes in music we have, in a matter of speaking in other words you immediately notice if the music you are currently hearing is something you like or not. But as everyone has their own taste, everyone chooses the music they like and prefers to listen to.
The mind and the music are two factors that can blend into each other and both fit together perfectly if you just allow it to happen while listening. But just as everything in this world even you evolve and grow both mentally and physically. So mentally your musical choice can expand and you can turn out liking harder music, softer, slower, faster music etc. The interpretation of the music might still be the same but the feelings you get from the music whatever style of music it is will be the same, only that you now need other type of music to get the same type of feelings.
Music is a constant, evolving, very deep and pure source for modification of the human mind. It is an individual tool for everyone to help us and guide us through whatever hassle we have in life at the moment we choose to listen to music. It is helping hand in whatever way we want, it is sound waves to listen to and to follow if we wish. It is for everyone and it is here to stay! Everyone has their own taste and musical experiences, but just as the music you are listening to, it can evolve into something much greater for each individual human being.
To me music is something divine, how tones, harmonies together with sounds and effects can change my state of mind and way of thinking very fast. Music is something I feel I can relate to in many ways, I think it is like that for all of us if we have found the music we like. I can go into personal states when I just like to be for myself just sitting in my chair in front of my computer and nod my head for hours singing to the lyrics if their is any. When I am like that I just drift away, start thinking of personal things. It is like the music is talking to me, it is telling me to just be and to forget about the every day seriousness and to let go of all the responsibility for a change and just listen to the music and enjoy what you are doing. Music gives me time for myself and it gives me strength to carry on in hard situations in life, in that way music is very universal to me and my way of living!
I have grown to like my music so much I am starting to think I can’t live without it. Who would I be without music and what would I be doing? What would I do if music didn’t exist?
These are of course questions that are very unnecessary but music is still what keeps me going and helps me to let go of reality for a while and just lean back and listen to the music pounding inside my head just the way I like it. It is uplifting as well as it is for chilling out, it can be to me whatever I want it to be and that is what I like the most. The psychedelic rough beats and basses is what talks to me the most, when I hear a good track things are simply going wild inside of me and I feel an urge to move to the music because it is simply that good.
My music is a sub-genre of electronic music called psychedelic trance or psytrance. No it isn’t something that will make you go berserk and start smashing things or totally crazy on a rampage just because of the name. It is simply rhythms and good beats with massive space-like atmospheres and lots of noises and effects that speaks to many minds in a very unique and special way, at least to me it is. Psytrance is the strongest thing in my life ever as it continues to always push me forward in the right direction towards my goal somewhere in the end of my path of life.
Music is my closest friend as well as my most beloved companion in life. Music is always there for me when I need it and it has never let me down or done something bad against me, and I know it never will, because my music is who I am and what I like. My music is me and my music loves me just as much as I love music!
