Music = (Composer's Story + Story's Emotions) Musical Sound + Listener's Connection

Music = (Composer's Story + Story's Emotions) Musical Sound + Listener's Connection

Music moves people in such different ways due its emotional connection with its listeners. Emotional music moves me in such a profound way. Similarly, It flows naturally from within me for outer expression when I write music. In hindsight, whenever I had a choice to choreograph dance pieces many years ago, I would choose very emotional, dark music to share stories that also had a sad dark premise. So, it appears that my creative self-expression comes from an inner desire to express that which I usually do not express in my normal course of interaction with the rest of the world. People often describe me as having a happy-go-lucky, jovial, exuberant persona. Carl Jung believed that there is a mechanism of balance between the inner and outer life of a person. Nature in its grand scheme seeks balance. Weather is an excellent example. From that perspective, that makes some sense. However, creating music is much more than that. Music goes deeper than that.

A composer’s creation becomes music when a listener makes a connection with a composer’s creation in a personal way to the listener. Hence, every person is moved by different types of music. What I find to be music to my ears may not be music to another’s ears. A composer’s story or emotional intention may not be exactly the same to the meaning attributed by the listener. It is the listener’s connection with the composer’s creation that results in music to one’s ears. A listener becomes a fan when that listener identifies and connects with much of a music creator’s music. The old adage “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’ speaks a truth for music creators that music is in the ears of the beholder. So, composers hope …

Love Lost: Finding Your Fire Again Music & Video Out Today 12/31/2018

Although Love Lost: Finding Your Fire Again is in a minor key and begins with a very melancholic poignant introduction, its segue to a face paced movement depicts the search for strength in self-belief, in hope, in a tomorrow that holds a promise of meaning and fulfillment. …

The Evolution of an Artist and his Independent Label: A Story in Every Song
