What Music Does For The World And Life Itself
By GLENN DAVIS DOCTOR G
In order for animate and inanimate objects to exist, they require certain things to do so. Living things such as plants, animals and people need specific essentials such as food, air, water and an environment that will sustain. Certain inanimate objects would not exist without having been created by something, whether it is a building built by humans, or a nest constructed by a bird. This concept caused me to think about just how much the world relies on music and how important music really is.
Music has been around for quite some time. Music has seniority over the birth or inventions of radio, television, motion pictures, film, automobiles, aircraft, computers, cell phones, and the list goes on. The actual birthday of music remains a mystery. Music can take form without intent, be it a bird singing, or someone whistling a melody without being prompted to do so. Music, like many things in life, is often taken for granted. Music impacts just about everything in some way and music is just about everywhere in some way. Business and money rely on music, religion relies on music, tv, radio, those who work in the media or press rely on it, movies rely on it, the people and businesses that make things from cars to candy bars rely on music. I will offer evidence as proof in the form of some examples:
– Almost all commercials and shows on TV have music integrated into them.
– Watch an action scene, love scene, etc. in a movie with the sound off (a section without dialog, obviously) and you will be astounded at the importance of having music being incorporated.
– Music affords content for writers in the form of reviews, news stories, gossip columns and tabloids, the Internet, trade publications, books and magazines.
– Music is a way to practice or celebrate culture and religion. Picture a church without gospel music or hymns. Picture a parade or cultural event without music. Picture wedding activities without music.
– Picture a nightclub or restaurant without music.
– The lion share of the Electronics Industry is based on music. Musicians use electronics. Studios use electronics. Apple iPod and other MP3 players rely heavily on music to exist. Think how many things have speakers in them, or have the ability to generate sound and the picture becomes crystal clear.
By now, you should be able to see where I am going with this and the list could go on almost infinitely. Music creates jobs. Music creates careers. Music has the ability to bring joy and happiness to people (and it has been said plants and animals are receptive as well). Music creates business and financial gain. Music offers inspiration. Music is educational. Music is fun. Music entertains. Music is global. Music is THE universal language.
The world and life itself requires and demands the benefits of music. It’s that important.
