The Impact of Music

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

Right now, I’m listening to the main theme from October Sky. Great movie but that’s not what this entyr is about.

It’s amazing how much impact a song has on me these days. Like, right now, the theme. It’s bringing tears to my eyes. The somber yet mellow violin solo in this song just gets to me. It’s really a gorgeous piece. Makes me want to get the whole soundtrack, but Amazon ran out. And I am NOT paying 40 bucks for a used one. Hell no.

Today was the KAIAC String/Orchestra concert. Well, Concerto Grosso was indeed… gross. But the other songs, the Heredides (sp?) was simply powerful. The arrangement of Gershwin’s An American in Paris was whimisical. And the Middle School strings was actually great too. I was impressed by them.

But music… I don’t think I’ll be able to live without it. It’s like… without it, I’ll be like Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing. I’ll be an robot with no emotions, no feelings whatsoever. Music brings it out for me though. Like last night. I caught a movie on the television, and it was a Korean movie. Pretty interesting, but I noticed something: NO MUSIC. WTF? All I heard was cars passing by in the background. That’s it. x_x;; I was like… this movie needs some damn music to spice things up!

I have no clue when I became so into music. It’s almost scary how I’m becoming one with it almost.

But enough with that. I got a rough draft to write. A short story for ENGL 294. *sighs* At least I have music. That’s all it matters.
