Saturation point. Musical perception …

I really don’t know how objective my subjective pessimism is, but the ghost of a certain decline has stubbornly seemed to me for the past few years. Atrophy of musical perception? Decadence? Satiety? Perhaps the last. I recall one of Murphy’s laws: “The sum of the mind on the planet is a constant value, but the population is growing.” Paradoxical as it may seem, but perhaps from the general “Internetization” of the musical space, coupled with the increasing degree of accessibility of musical creation to the average layman, we no less lost than we won.

When listening to a song, one can always “finish” in the imagination what is more suitable for it: the wide expanse of the landscape, festivities …

Music, like any art, conveys the thoughts of the person who created it, the thoughts and feelings of those whom it depicts (in song, dance, opera, symphony). Compare the sounds in the music with the colors in the painting or the melody with the lines in the picture. And to make it even more interesting, draw what you Continue reading
