it’s really weird, billy joel’s pop song ‘piano man’ had an enormous emotional effect on me when i was very little. it sounds a little silly now, i’m not sure whether i still like the song; it’s a little slow and hammy. but it was the first song i ever really liked so passionately, totally and completely. it taught me that music was one of my enormous loves, and that i did not exactly experience the world through a mostly visual lens sometimes.
i feel like we as humans are constantly talking about the things we /see/ instead of the things we /hear/. and music is an incredible stimulation of that sense. music is the thing that can bring me to tears by and far the easiest.
also, i think music can also put me into my happiest states of being. that’s a powerful force.
it’s interesting, because the few times i have astral projected, it has been completely on a visual, and not an auditory plane.
