My be its just me but i get really inspired by certain musical riffs, compositiona and lyrics.... they seem to reach in and grip you.

just listening to the beats, and the lyrics can create a vibe that will enrich your thoughts and bring out some amazing works.

like i said this is for me other people might think differently....

Later,
Anne

I agree with you about music being a great source of inspiration for me as well. I find the lyrics and the music to be captivating and motivating!
ESPECIALLY KoRn...

Good thread, Anne.  I'm glad you started it.

I've found thru experience that different types of music are very good for putting you into certain mental states, and also for enhancing certain mental states.  For example, Bach facilitates certain modes of analytical thought, whereas hardcore/industrial gets me all worked up and ready for intense physical activity (like running or working out).  Also, Mozart and Vivaldi are very good for long-distance running.  Trance is excellent for putting me in a creative state of mind, though I also find Bach useful here.

take care,
Shawn

I agree with Dara
KoRn helps get anger out so does Ozzy
without music I think we'd all be dead

( my "love" Sasha wrote this)

there is no reason for music...no logical explanation for what would have driven mankind to start keeping beat. It's a way to express on the outside what you are feeling inside. I love electronic music because it is my heartbeat. the pounding of the bass is what I feel inside 24/7, it's what drives me, it's what keeps me alive.
when I see people dance at parties, I can see the joy of being lost in the beat, in the music that is our lives. Dancing is primal and unrestrained, it is a pure release. What I love about going to parties is that I can forget my life and everyone around me...and just be free...just dance.

I agree that music is quite possibly the backbone of ALL human thought and/or creation. It sickens me whenever I hear someone bad-mouthing a certain genre of music because in all honesty there is no such thing as the BEST music. The music industry itself is such an opiniated business. I used to be one of those metalheads who would always defend his rock roots.
But as time went on I grew wiser and a lot more open-minded. I think my guitar playing is what truly opened me up to ALL genres of music. I am now 20 yrs old and have been playing guitar for 8 yrs. I LOVE PLAYING!
Music definitely saved me from those angst-ridden teenage years. I once felt lost and without a purpose but ever since I plugged in the guitar I have felt a sense of belonging.Belonging to something better than this narrow-minded society. Anyways I could babble on forever but there wouldn't be enough room.

I like the idea behind mind-brain.com!
Keep up the awesome site.

My guitar is a big help in letting me relieve stress and creativity that i have. Drawing also helps me a lot,

Pariah, I used to be the same way. I was into my kind of music and that was all there was to me. When I went to college I realized how many different types of music there are. My appreciation for many types of music developed. It helped me realize what kind of music I like best.

Most popular music is repetative riffs. They play the same riffs 10 times. I can't stand a lot of metal bands, emo, rock and roll bands... for this reason. Come on, Creed? Korn? I can make a better song with a can of beans and my ass.

There is no way that music plays an essential role in all thought and/or creation. That's crazy. If that is true, then music is God. I'm not willing to believe that Creed comes close to making something divine.

Music is God, and God is music! (made you look!)
Why?
Because all things are patterns of 'something.' In fact, the closer you look at things, the more you see only patterns. Look at a photo under 30x magnification and you only see dots; look at matter under Planck magnification and you only see wiggly probability-mathematical-thought patterns that don't even make sense as 'matter' anymore.
Did you know that if you could travel in the right directionabout forty billion miles you might meet your exact duplicate? (Tegmark, Scientific American, 2003.) Go far enough, and everything repeats like the wallpaper in your grandma's house. All patterns are expressed. Every you is true.
Every musician knows that all music is patterns (if you don't understand the genre, you don't understand the patterns and their meaning). Jazz, like all great music, is the great unspoken truth. If it is not the great unspoken truth, it's not good music. Complexity results from putting off repetition, which is why those jazz players want to go through every possible variation and not revisit them. If you find a music 'stupid' you mean that it is repeating itself and boring you (I once read that the charm of punk was its high information content, and when punkers siad something bored them, they weren't being cruel, they were simply pointing out that it had low information content.)
This is why you (and I, incidentally) find Creed deficient; they might feel genuine awe or joy, for example, but have not done well in communicating that to our nervous systems.
I find that if one has something interesting to say, one finds a way to say it.
Incidentally, I suspect that the beat is very deep in the human mind. We start from a clump of cells deep in our mother's womb, and before we can feel the world, or see it, we can hear a heartbeat, and any other rhythm that may be filtering in. Our brain is probably using this early input in ways we don't understand yet; we are very rhythmic creatures.

Dear Snowflake

If your quote is to be considered true then you have never been moved by music.

Apart from religion, music is the most powerful form of information available to humans.

It stemmed from the early rythmic sounds of our past from the early primates as a way of communicating over distances further than the human voice could be carried. Since then it has shaped every single nation at the most pivotal point in a humans life. " The teenage years"

At this time in your life you are waking up to the idea that your parents are not always right. The world keeps on moving and the music we all listen to defines us.

Punk rock for an example came from (according to all the "clever" people) London in the 70s, but did you know that Mozart was considered a rebel in his time ?
Music is an expression of emotion through sound waves. Everything in this universe is in constant motion, everything reverberates at a different pitch and speed. Light for example is just a wave length of a certain speed that we humans perceive. Everything in the universe can be reduced to wavelengths moving at varying speeds.

Considering music to being a God, well I think that music is just as powerful a medium as religious belief is. When you as a teenager have realised your parents are not always right and their world was a different place that cannot possibly be related to yours, you try and find solace in like-minded people. One of the mediums that help to define generations is the music that people not only listen to but relate to the texts. Who hasnt listened to thier favourite music and wished the world could understand it ? Who hasnt been moved by the lyrics of a sad song ? Who hasnt wondered why the popular music of the time could express your emotions better than you could yourself ?

Who hasnt noticed that most bands start off together as teenagers trying to rebel against the conformity of thier surroundings ? Think of the greats within the music gendré, how old was Elvis when he became famous, how about the Beatles ? The Rolling Stones ?
All musicians are influenced by their surroundings and when they understand as an individual they cannot change the world, they try to let their lyrics and music speak for them.

Humans as stated before in this thread are subjected to the outside world long before they are born. The rythmic beat of a mothers heart whilst the child is still within the womb is still the best "music" to soothe a child. Even though we as adults cannot remember our early years, I as a parent have used music to calm my children and there have been numerous trials where the heartbeat of a mother has been played back to infants and they automatically feel safe and content. The most effective "pacifier" I found for my children when they were infants was singing softly to them. Walking back and forth rocking the baby gently holding it close to my chest so they could feel my heartbeat and singing lullabys. Any parent of a colic child would tell you the same.

I believe that music does play an essential role in ALL thought and ALL creation, but it isnt God as we humans perceive an immortal almight being to be. But and its a big but, understanding the human need to label everything to make it easier to identify with, the entire universe can ( and has been by many religions ) be explained as a "song", it is all dependant upon your own interpretationof the word " song". Is it music and only music ? Or is it a relation between everything in the universe travelling along wavelengths ?

So just remember, a generation can de defined by the music it identifies with alone. The local environment is the sorce of inspiration. If there wasnt so much death and destruction in needless wars in the 60s the hippie movement and its music would never have existed. If the oppression of slaves from the African continent to the US hadnt taken place then almost all modern music from soul to jazz wouldnt exist. Rock music is an evolutionary product from these sources.

It is simple to understand the rock music of today, it is just the youth of the world telling us they are not happy with the way the world is today, and they like to shout and scream into their microphones. Those who identify with this music want to shout and scream for the very same reasons. We are all taught to believe in this "good versus evil " scenario and the world would be a better place if we all thought the same way, idyllic ideals etc... but we also know that this world of ours doesnt work that way. I hope you understand what I mean.

We all have an inherant "little rebel" inside of us and music can allow this rebel to be heard.

Just another quick example of the power of music, have you ever been to or seen a music concert ? Havent you noticed the amount of emotions that can be generated by a few people on the stage and thousands in the audience ? They move people more than the most prolific of political speakers in the world.
There is something called the politics of music. If used correctly it can unify anyone and everyone, if used incorrectly it can rip society apart. Never under estimate the power of music !!!
Just think of the amount of great movies that would have been mediocre if the soundtrack was void of music !

Well thats my twopennyworth

Music is indeed the most obvious creative element in all things. As we know - Pythagoras is credited with developing the octave and through the use of unseen energy related to this - he healed as did the Therapeutae. He learned about the phi and lattices of energy which we now see String Theory knows start out with 'one-dimensional harmonic forces'. Indeed all forms of energy including the dross or most simple things we can SEE are comprised of harmonic forces - therefore.

You note that would mean music is GO(o)d and that is what the Harmonic Convergence people (like me) think. It is there in the Logos and the chants we could form with our mouth with simple clicking noises to start with. It is there in the archetypes of our collective thoughts built up over eons before we could speak anything more than an 'a' vowel which may have occured only 15,000 years ago. None of what speech has added means the ancients could not think despite what Lockean scholars posited.

and currently with nothing more than a coffee or a snack

and so far I would say 90 percent of the time I end up with

a really amazing artwork ( though as a rule I dispose of 9 out of ten so I have to do ten in a sitting to get ONE really superb piece, BUT these percentages are he same whether I work daily or once per week )


I credit the music for putting my brain in a certain neurological state to produce.

When I work in silence my work is successful less often BUT

I know some people are the opposite ! i bet writers mostly prefer silence (?)

well the thing about music is that it is something understood through our sense of hearing. it is made of sounds. different sounds and sound combinations invoke different emotions in us because of what our minds relate thoes sounds to. for example, think of the notes and note combinations that a baby makes when it is crying. think about how you feel when you hear a baby cry. then think of music that makes you feel the same way that you feel when you hear the baby cry and see if that music contains the same notes and note combinations that the baby makes. the nature of music is the music of nature.

Is there any scientific evidence for this? It is an interesting hypothesis.

Listening to birdsong, frog calls, and cricket buzzing makes me realize just how long music has been around. While our human music has gone well beyond direct courtship signals, the emotional component hints at the idea that music is using emotional areas of the brain to communicate to the listener a reliable signal of attraction to the sound being emitted. While we all have our own preferences in music, when someone misses notes or plays off-time, whether it's classical or garage rock, everyone recognizes it.

Music's innate sensory bias towards creative auditory expression within an abstract, though relative framework of musical tempo and pitch frequency is pretty mysterious in origin, especially due to it's ever-changing genres and styles that help to define generations. Good music isn't easy to create, yet it is well-prized, very attractive, and taken seriously as an interest by just about everyone. With this sort of selection towards musical talent, you'd think we'd all be Mozart's by now.

The variety of emotions that different musical styles brings is interesting to me, as well as the idea that our adolescent stage heightens this emotional importance.

My cousin (who's 16 mos. now) has been dancing to music ever since he learned to stand up. Truly innate as far I'm concerned. The transformation of music from it's evolutionary roots to today almost makes it harder to understand it's function, but as long as it still makes us feel, I guess that's all that really matters.

It's funny, I was just talking with someone about this topic today. A very basic question might be, What exactly is music? What makes one set of sounds unmistakably music, while another set of sounds is not? Since virtually all of us seem to be able to recognize music when we hear it, and since we univerally dance to it, create it, and just plain enjoy it, I think it must have been very important for our survival at one time.

I remember hearing about an interesting study about the impact of music on the brain when coupled with exercise. I found an article about it:

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/...40324071444.htm

I like to listen to Keiko Matsui (smooth jazz) when I write poetry,
First: Her songs are instrumental so I can think of my own words rather than hear someone else's words. My favourite songs of hers are "Mountain Shakedown", "A Cat on the Chimney" and "Mask"
Second: I hear music all the time in my head, I can't turnoff the stereo. I can drowned it out like when I watch TV or play a CD, but if the room is quiet, then I always hear music. I went to a doctor once about it, and he said that this was normal for some people.

Hi Neurosail--what a great name.

I'd never heard Keiko Matsui, but after putting her name into my list at pandora.com, I'm currently listening to songs by her and others of the same genre. I almost forgot how relaxing and/or inspiring instrumental music can be.

Btw, pandora is free, and it automatically plays a stream of music based on a favored artist or song that you select (see quote). I have it going almost all the time now while I'm on the computer. Apparently, the database has over 300,000 songs. I've developed several personalized "radio stations" to suit my mood. It's great because it often selects songs that I love by artists that I'd otherwise never know about. If anyone else out there uses pandora, I'd really like to hear feedback and share ideas.

The Music Genome Project

On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.

Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

Over the past 5 years, we've carefully listened to the songs of over 10,000 different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

We hope you enjoy the journey.

"Afternoon Delight" does get old after the 100 time hearing it in rotation. Thanks for the information about pandora. I will open that box later!
You might also like to listen to:
Bond: It is modern classical and party music! (Some of it is.) I like "Adagio for Strings", "Midnight Garden" and "Lullaby" off their "Classified" album for thinking music.
Then I like "Bond Remixed" album (All of it!) for party, (but there is one Christmas song on it, just to warn you, I just "Skip" that unless it is Christmas.)
I also have Animusic (Soundtrack), It is all computer music.
Back to jazz: I also have Wynton Marsalis and Ellis Marsalis "Joe Cool's Blue" music from "Peanuts and the Gang".
And last but not lease is the instrumental classics:
Henri Mancini's "Pink Panther Theme", and "The Windmills of Your Mind" (So true for me!),
Vangelis "Chariots Of Fire" and "Heaven and Hell"

If you are looking for music to help with this crappy existence then try listening to TOOL,the depth of the lyrics is bottomless,the riffs and percussion are technically simple but they re-work and vary the number of beats in ways few have or will consider and then you have MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN`s Voice ,if angels existed and could sing they would pale in comparison (i kid you not),try the new album 10,000 DAYS(right in two is my fav track)also lateralus people of all tastes wil enjoy this and LATERALUS,their earlier work would probably only appeal to the rock crowd(but anyone struggling with this reality or others view of reality will adore their work...)PS-MUSIC IS FOOD FOR THE SOUL! (if the soul wasn`t an abstract concept obviously-but never the less it still has the power to quell the beast.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

We hope you enjoy the journey.

gene (j?n)
n.
A hereditary unit consisting of a sequence of DNA that occupies a specific location on a chromosome and determines a particular characteristic in an organism. Genes undergo mutation when their DNA sequence changes.

[German Gen, from gen-, begetting, in Greek words (such as genos, race, offspring).]

Bad choice and trendy usurping of a biological. What has the structure of music got to do with genes? The fundamentals of music are wavelength, frequency, auditory detection and neuro(personal)interpretation. Try creating a title out of that lot. (ps, I was trained on classical piano and also play the guitar; also use an Evolution keyboard with garageband, listen from Purcell to M.Manson; wife sings with York Opera and runs a singing school, so have a bit of experience of music). Apart from that, what a great project. I look forward to reading(hearing) more.

If you are looking for music to help with this crappy existence then try listening to TOOL,the depth of the lyrics is bottomless,the riffs and percussion are technically simple but they re-work and vary the number of beats in ways few have or will consider and then you have MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN`s Voice ,if angels existed and could sing they would pale in comparison (i kid you not),try the new album 10,000 DAYS(right in two is my fav track)also lateralus people of all tastes wil enjoy this and LATERALUS,their earlier work would probably only appeal to the rock crowd(but anyone struggling with this reality or others view of reality will adore their work...)PS-MUSIC IS FOOD FOR THE SOUL! (if the soul wasn`t an abstract concept obviously-but never the less it still has the power to quell the beast.


You need to listen to (more) Andreas Scholl and Stephen Fretwell (try New York).

The Music Genome Project

On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.

Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

Over the past 5 years, we've carefully listened to the songs of over 10,000 different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

We hope you enjoy the journey.

The name genome is not the best choice, agreed. But did you actually try pandora.com? It's incredibly easy to use. In fact, mid-sentence, I created a "radio station" based on Tool's music. I'd never heard Tool before, but right now, I'm listening to Lateralus.

I did (10000 Days and Lateralus I already had, but my son tells me I need Aenima). However, Ludovico Einaudi says so much more without words - Le Onde is pure beauty. I'd listen to more, but I've just discovered Archi Bronson Outfit and Karine Polwart and life is too full. Can you cope with the school music lesson music in lieu of Tools lyrics? Well, OK not every track on an album is usually agreeable to everyone. But yes, I have them there and sometimes my iTunes playlist reaches.
