I find it odd that I can't even grasp the most simple concepts yet I use them to their greatest potential..
I can't read or write music, I can only interpret and create sounds.
i'll use my page as an example, 42 or more melodies i've written within the past month.
When I make them in the moment, I have sort of an idea of what i'm going to hear, rather then what I want to hear. In other words, these melodies are almost writing themselves out with me as an observer.
What about melodies, makes sense?
I mean, how does a bunch of notes combined in patterns give the 'sense' of anything?
And how do these specific melodies come from me personally?
Do they make sense only to me? Or to everyone who has an understanding of music?
I see them as expressions, but of what,
has the world around me created this?
or my experience within the world?edit on 5-10-2012 by yourmaker because: (no reason given)
