Music is strange. I play and compose music myself and there are several oddities that have occurred to me while I played for a (small) audience.
The simplest tones can have such a big impact. Just a few notes can call a tear or a smile, and a few notes more can make shivers go through your body. Like your senses caressed by the winds or waters, rushing over your being in a swiftness that can come wholly unexpectedly.
For me, my music is just another medium. Words, music, lines, imagery, touch, smell, taste. It doesn't matter which I choose, each is just another facet of expression. And all are fun to do.
Just a thought.
