[Question] What is music for you?

Hey :)

 

Just a simple question - what is music for you?
or even better question: what makes music enjoyable for you?

 

I know there are universal truths on what defines music, but I think this varies per person too.

Why I ask this question, I often see debates on beatless songs "lacking beats and thus rhythm", and therefore some listeners don't view them as (conventional) songs or music, but some sort of arty sound project.

Similar debates go on metal genres, electronic music (again missing the fact it's not just edm, god!) and weirder subgenres. I've also seen a few people preferring lyrical content over instrumental

 

Looking forward to your opinions and input :)

Hey @Sebasty,

 

I always have music playing actually. Hanging with friends, to pass some time, as a coping mechanism, while cleaning and much more... :)

What is Music ? That's a very simple question but when you start to think about an answer, you find out how complex it is.

 

So, for answering this question I have chosen to give multiple examples for trying to define what is music for me.

 

First of all, I would say : Music is something I can't live without.

 

Music is feeling, music is emotion, music is a weapon, music is a bridge between generations.

 

You can feel music through your body, through your mind, through your heart, through your nerves.

 

As far as I remember, I have always been surrounded by music. I am sure that music was around me as soon as I have been conceived inside my mom, and until now it never left me.

 

So, for me :

 

Music is tribal, in the sense of African tribes feel it with all their body, and make me dance.
