Music, the Spiritual Connection
All through the age's music and spirituality as served hand in hand. As for instruments, the earliest is presumed to be, percussions from noisemakers to drums.
Wind instruments such as reed flutes followed closely, later as the technologies evolved string instruments and organs.
All during this long history of humankind musical quests, the most used instrument, as been the voice. From primitive humming to the rich and melodious Gregorian chants.
Music as an instrument to heightens the senses, to reach beyond and perhaps,even, reach whatever God or Gods or even Goddesses that particular society worshiped.
Often the participants would reach trances and reported communication with the Divine. The same still applies today, many "churches" use music in this fashion.
Now, as a rule however, music has been reduced to a mere form of entertainment to the masses at large. A simple look at the type of music available mostly cloned variations on what currently sells the most.
The lack of creativity is vivid! To be fair it is not only limited to the field of music. Just look at the past few years until today and count the number of remakes. Even worst the remakes of remakes!!!
But I digress, you can still find spiritual music, there is a rebirth of such music Especially in the Christian music genre which is expanding at a phenomenal rate lately.
From the traditional Gospel style to Punk and even Heavy metal!!!
Reminds me that it was not so long ago that the clergy boldly proclaimed rock music to be inspired and even affirmed it to be the work of the devil!!!
Ask yourself this;
When was the last time you heard of a style of music being created? No, Rap dates back to the 60's, hip-hop, trip hop and all other hops to surface recently are but variations on the same "rap" theme.
Where are the experimenters, the Zappa's, Pink Floyds, and others?
Those brave soul who push the envelope of what music is, those that are unsatisfied with the musical status quo and pre digested drivel!
Perhaps, if it at all, independent medias might be able to bring you those very same artists but it is well known that these have a limited but thankfully growing following.
Maybe in a few years if not decades, when the masses have becomedisenchanted with the corporative offering. Then start deserting to the Independents perhaps then, will the heavy machinery slowly provide to them really fresh and truly creative music.
Perhaps then will we see the emergence of a music that reaches your Soul and animate you the very core?
