Music is a universal language, it’s an essential element of life from the deep amazon to the hot sahara we make music. Music is of two major characteristics; the sound and the message.
The sound includes elements like (rhythm, harmony, dynamics, tone, texture, form and melody) but what is more important in a song, the sound or the message?
Few artists have been blessed with the ability to perfect the two features of music but there has always been a silent duel between the two xteristics.
From my perspective, the sound edges message a little, it’s a tool if well utilized would stir any intended emotion. We see the influence in churches, at parties, at rallies but the message is just as important.
Fine music in its true essence is a perfect blend of both.
BUT IF A GUN IS POINTED TO MY HEAD, I’D GO FOR SOUND, WHATS YOIR OPINION ?
