As musicians we have a duty to entertain, reach out and touch the people who hear us, to create a euphoric escape or make a house into a home.
We listen to notes carefully, mindfully picking notes with delicacy like sacred fruit from a musical tree.
But more often than not its the music that creates, not us. We are but messengers who convey the sounds that enter the canals that lead to your heart. Nothing more than the ones who write the words on paper for a letter you recieve.
But this is better than a letter, letters are plain and simple, you know what they mean and there’s nothing more to them, not music.
Music is open to interpretation, music can mean one thing to one person and another to the next.
Music creates escape, music creates goodness as well as evil. Music creates idols whom we worship with each listen, it creates a door which opens up into worlds we’d never dream of.
We might make the music, but the music makes you.
