That Music Effect

It's been a long time since I've listened to complete different music than rock and classical. This time I decided to listen to Azerbaijani music (not modern, but of Soviet Union) and some Russian songs. I must assure you that it went deeply through my bones. It made me think of that effect of music. That influence it makes to us and our emotions. Rather than influence - it's emotion arousing. I don't know how our brains respond to the sounds and music, but I'm quite sure these music notes go deep and bring joy or sadness depending on the song. I think, that's the reason there are major and minor scales in music. Major and minor tones. Minor tones bring some kind of sadness, nostalgic emotions. Major ones let us be happier, joyful and proactive. It's like a game of music waves. Waves that go slow will make you slower, stand there with you and remembering that old good days or just think how great it could be if you had a relationship with that girl you met in camp last summer. 

That's magic.That's the most gorgeous feeling. Nobody could prove anything about it. I remember Kurt Vonnegut's quote I read a month ago, saying: "Music is, to me, proof of the existence of God. It is so extraordinarily full of magic, and in tough times of my life I can listen to music and it makes such a difference." Why not? Sure, for me, it's not about god's existence, but it really makes such a big difference after listening to music. It changes one's mood in a very big speed. Just one psychedelic song and you'll get into trance like you've just got LSD. Listen to Metallica's "Ride the Lightning" and your fingers will look for something to take and break or play. Do you remember getting annoyed of a car beeping? Or do you remember that feeling of relaxation when hearing a bird singing? 

All the nature makes some sound. And still there's a harmony. No sound of nature made a man deaf. And there's no such a big noise that we get annoyed, do we? Even the sound of sea waves are full of harmony, although there are so many waves flushing into the sea. I love that sound. That music of nature. What about breath? It is like a small tiny wind of every human being. It goes up and down every single day, every single hour, every single second it's in the motion not asking us any permission for it. Without breathing we are all dead. That air never leaves us till the end of our days. And everybody shares it. Nobody says: "I need more, you bastard! Get out of here, you occupy my territory of air!". Everybody has it. Nobody has more or less. Of course, I'm not talking about the people in hospitals who need some oxygen coming out of plastic wires. It's our equality. Everyone deserves it and everyone gets it. There's Yoko Ono's poem on Air. Let me share it with you:

"It’s sad that
the air is the only thing we share.

No matter how close we get to each other,there is always air between us.

It’s also nice that we share the air,

No matter how far apart we are

the air links us"

Actually, right now I'm listening to psychedelic Samsara Blues Experiment band. Check them out, they're very stoning.
