Music: 1

23 Aug

Huzzah!

The time has come, my walrus friends, to talk of many things.
Of blues and heavy rocking tracks.
Of savages who sing.
And why the ‘C’ is royally taught.
And whether dead are kings.

Music is an art form whose medium is sound.

The word ‘music’ comes from a greek word, which spelled out in latin letters is mousike, which basically means, “art of the Muses.”

The “Muses” were a collection of greek gods/goddesses (possibly just one goddess—as there isn’t any clear references as to whether it was for sure 1, 3, or 9 beings). With that said, in some of the most clear myths, there were three muses. One of voice, one of practice, and one of memory. This myth said that the three muses together formed the preconditions of their art—a beautiful art which human kind have been trying to imitate ever since (whether that’s since they were born, died, or performed at jazzfest for the first/last time, is unbeknownst to me).

So, that was the ancient Greek’s way of saying that music is seriously awesome.

Just thought you may want to know that little bit of information.

Until we meet again, have a better than average day.
