Far more than words, that which conveys images, ideas, and emotions is language. Music can be quite effective in doing this. But it can go farther. Music can express, evoke and convey that which cannot be reached by words and can reach a part of us that is unreceptive by other means. Music changes us, immediately and over a span of time, in a way that nothing else can.
Music is pure. It speaks that which cannot be spoken, shows us what cannot be seen, and communicates beyond the limits of mere language. It exists in the realm of the imagination. Above all, it works the spirit. We make and listen to music in order to be in that spirit world. We do it in order to be changed.
I want, I need to be in that world and to meet and welcome others there. What I have always had to say can only be communicated effectively through music.
