- music and motivation -
'Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind ... in the air .. in the light. It's all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do, is listen.'
- August Rush
This blog is dedicated to those who are dedicated to music. To those who are willing to open themselves up for all the splendor and variety of music. To those who show passion for music - no matter if it's listening to, making or promoting it. You're the ones I'm reaching out to. This blog is dedicated to YOU.
It's said every day you spend without a smile, is a day lost. And it's true. You gotta seek for something to make you smile every once in a while. It has no reason to force it, take it as it comes. I did and found it's music that makes me smile, makes me feel comfortable and satisfied with all the things being. Now there passes no day, I'm not listening to music and by listening to it I mean decent and attentive listening. It's an adventure for me on every occasion as I love to explore all the depths within a composition. It's music that makes me smile, music I'd like to share with you, if you let me.
So, come along on this journey, listen and feel free to recommend, to be involved, to show support to musicians (see them peform, promote their music if you like to, purchase their music if you consider it's worth your money - and honestly, it is, it is since the musicians have not only put heart&soul into creating their songs, they have also invested passion, time and money to elaborate songs you're gonna enjoy daily, lastly they have created the songs for you, the listener, the fan, the supporter!), to share your love for music and to check on here occasionally.
This is probably just another music blog, hence why shall you care? Care because it's run by someone who is passionate about music, who is fully committed to it, by someone who dearly loves music. I do. And I'm quite convinced you're gonna find this enthusiasm within my blog posts, which are mainly gonna be about bands/musicians I fancy, about music I listen to, about the music institutions I'm involved with (Dr.Bones music show, Square Pig's Sty Rockin Chart, Radio Kaos Caribou). Every now and then, I'm gonna post reviews , gig information, playlists/songs ('Song Of The Day/Week') and - as a matter of heart - hereby I'll give it my best shot to promote the bands I've grown fond of more efficiently and by all means. Which basically means I'm gonna ask YOU to check on their music, to purchase it if you like what you hear, to help fund their album projects, to vote for them if they are participating in a contest in order to arouse attention for their music, to tell your friends about them, to blast their songs out loud and let the world know you're a fan, let people know they should listen too - literally.
Lastly, I'm gonna ask for your support. Support me in supporting them! I know that's quite a list, but I also know it will be worth my effort, as I know the music I'm gonna tell you about is something special, at least to me, hopefully also soon to you, and as I know I can count on your help. This being said: music enthusiasts assemble.
Now, carpe carmina. Seize music, bond to it, lose yourself in its wide dimension of tonal pleasure, simply put: bright up your life with it and enjoy it to the fullest. Listen!
