when it comes to music, there is something magical in the air.
i mean, there is something magical in the ear.

music has always had a special significance for me, i hear anything from pop to rock, to classic ..and classical, to country, jazz, soundtracks.. language is no bar – one of my weirder choices was swahili 🙂
i kid you not.
now playing: grease – summer days
i cannot claim to be any expert, who has heard everything there is to be; or even someone who would have heard everything you talk of. it is probable i would have heard it without knowing it, but i believe in music.
the genre, the composer, the type, the artists rarely are a criterion.. music in itself is a language.
now playing: shankar mahadevan – breathless

my favourite memory of music’s effect was yanni and my exams. every morning, en route to college, the car would be empty; with yanni playing. i would actually leave the car refreshed.. the music was enough to allow me to recharge in the half-hour it would take me to reach college.
interestingly, classical music while working on assignments does wonders for allowing one to really immerse oneself in the theory. and then really get out the perfect idea for the solution.
now playing: dus – dus bahaane
most of those nights that i spend not sleeping are possible due to the music that goes in the background.. without it, i don’t know how long i could have taken humming computers on standby.
on the flip side, silence is something i search for anywhere. in one of my favourite places in aberdeen, the local park, the favourite time of day is around 1 am – absolute silence. i remember a night roaming in the outskirts of mumbai, when the silence was actually deafening. there came a point when some of my friends started talking just to alleviate it.
at that time i realised the sound of silence was a music of its own. there can come a time when it can seem deathly silent.. this is rare.
now playing: ar rahman – rasiya
there are some people who never listen to music, this may make no sense to them. sometimes i wonder whether the point is there are some of us who need the be shown a way of leaving it all behind us, and getting lost in the music. losing ourself in a way, maybe…
…lost into space…….
hmm, yeah.. well as i was saying, we need to leave our body behind and go into a region where music surrounds, envelopes, and finally defines us.
and so the music becomes us.
