Thread: What is music?

  1. #1

    Default What is music?

    So this is just a thread about what music means to you. Behind the root of Music Theory has to be a cause. Such as my cause to music is soul, passion, heart, emotion. These are the things that drive me to play, listen and write music. You put these all together and this is what music is to me. I believe if you truly love music and you put your heart and soul into it you will make a great musician.

    If you put emotion, heart and soul into your music, even if your not playing your own songs, people will want to listen to you.

    Its my thought on what drives music, my opinion and you are all entitled to yours. Post your opinions below. No arguing please, its people's opinions and thoughts on what makes good musicians and great music.

    Music = Life. Simple as that.
    FINGER TWIN POWERS ACTIVATE!!!

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No loving embrace to see me through this tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.

    That's why I think the Turing test could be well complimented by another test of artificial intelligence: when it wants to play music.

    Imagine some technician is sitting in a room with an $8 million dollar air conditioning system, reading Battlestar Galactica fan fiction and sipping Mountain Dew, with a billion dollar computer designed by six of the smartest 12 people on the planet, running software written by the other six, and they told it to calculate how a particularly odd nebulae formed, and suddenly, everything just stops...

    ...and when he asks it why, it just says, "Can we get some music in here?"

    Then we know its alive.

    What is music to me? That's what I got from your opening post.

    Music isn't everything to me but it's a lot. It helps me through times, it hurts me through times. Whatever. It's entertaining...
    Stop being so damn introspective...

    I am mortuus, thanatos, the reaper's scythe that's oh so close, the anti-life, and the path you chose. I am death.

    For my music is like a friend who is always with me, supporting in bad times and enjoying with me in good times.

    Music is my worst enemy and I hold it so close for that reason alone.

    Music is what feelings sound like.
