Music for the Soul

What is music?

As per the official definition, music is the art of arranging sounds in time through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre.

But, we are not talking about the textbook definition here, are we?

I personally believe music is everything and anything. Music can be someone talking, or music can be traffic noise. It can be a song, or it can be your pet barking. It can be the sound of raindrops, or it can be silence. Music is anything that soothes you, anything which you enjoy listening to or not listening to.

It doesn’t necessarily need to be a song. Hip hop, jazz, pop, rock, and so on and on. Yes, it is a choice, but not the only choice. We have compartmentalized each and everything in a box. Apparently, that’s the way of society.

Listen to the sounds around you. The birds chirping, your friend talking, the person sitting in front of you tapping their feet, the sound of waves, the crying of a baby, or the silence at night.

I like to listen to audiobooks, and that’s music for me. You can try audible from amazon as well by clicking on this link .

It’s your choice, it’s your ears, and it’s your soul. It can be the voice of your loved ones, and it can be nothing but silence.

Ultimately, it’s all about personal preferences, isn’t it?
