Dan LaTourette Posted about 1 year ago How have you been touched by the cultural thread of music? I think music is a medium that we, as an observer/listener, have very little control over. The act of music coming into your ear is far different from watching a film or reading a book, which I personally believe have more interaction with the viewer and more viewer control. I say this because just as smell can trigger a illustrious reconstruction of a bygone memory, I feel sound can do the same with bringing out strong feelings and senses of imagery where you don't have that luxury in film and the words of a novel must be read first before interpretation; there is this continuity about listening to music that is uniquely intimate. Under those regards, I find that my favorite pieces of music to listen to have a sense of a catharsis, one the brings out a plethora of emotions. As an individual struggling with general anxiety disorder, I find this to not just be fun but also therapeutic. I was happy to see music helping out Ji-Hae Park as well.
