”The border between music and noise is always culturally defined—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place; in short, there is rarely a consensus … By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be.” Jean-Jacques Nattiez
Making music, for purposes of this blog, is a metaphor for success. It is great news that music can’t be defined. No one, wants someone outside of them defining what success looks like for them. But it can be pinpointed.
Something inside of us is stirred when communication, instrumentation, rhythmic togetherness, originality, improvisation, passionate energy, and a message of hope connects and combines simultaneously.
Success, Letting The (your) Music Play, is that stir that I speak of.
