Have any of you ever felt inexplicably attached to a piece of music? A piece of music that makes you feel all weird and soft on the inside, but you don’t understand why? Some of the music that I’ve heard/been listening to, makes me feel that way. Music that isn’t attached to any special memories. Music that isn’t connected to any thing I’ve ever gone through personally. Music that I have no reason to be so… attached to. Music that is special to me, but has no reason to be special to me. It’s… uncomfortably tangible, if you know what I mean. I don’t understand it. And it makes me all emotional and what not.
Where could this come from? Why would these songs/pieces, of all cultures and generations, make me feel this way? Why do they touch me so deeply if I don’t have a connection that’s on the surface?
I would like to apologize for making so many posts that aren’t centered around session music and tune sharing. The thing is, I value the intelligence that many of you have and I know that you know more than just what is in the dimension of Traditional music. There are many things that I don’t know a lot about and this is actually my most valuable resource in terms of all-around music research. I’ve come to know a lot of you and I can’t get the answers anywhere else that I can get from here. Some of you I wouldn’t consider strangers, and there are some that I would even call my friends. And i’m sure not comfortable posting things like this anywhere else. At least here, I know what to expect. Thanks for your time.
