Group poem, Humanities Track, In Music and Sound
Rhythms move me through my day and make me feel alive.
A backbone of melody
Give me a beat boys and free my soul
Getting lost in the mix
Sounds of the day, and sounds of the night - I sleep to the throbbing of my pulse and wake up to the ticking away of time
Music is the reason I like bollywood films
A renewal of my innermost strengths
the silence between each note can be as moving as the notes themselves
Pulling on the strings of your heart and your memories
A few bars of melody can unite us more than any speech or sermon
Music can provide a common escape
Hymns from my childhood
Music frees you of your emotions
I went to a noise show once; shows noise can be music if you can trick your ears
One phrase over and over and I’m caught up within the sound until I release myself
Music is the life blood.
Stepping in to the hospitals, with all the sounds from people's talking, alarm‘s beeping, and machines running, I know another day is happening
The sound of life, it is a real thing you know,
We are surrounded by it, guided north
