Just Push Play!
Music can make us sad, angry, happy and wistful. It can send you back to a moment in your life that you’re not going to forget…or that you may wish you really could forget.
When you tap different keys on a piano, it creates different musical notes. When you listen to different types of music, it sounds different notes in your creative psyche that allows you to perhaps move through the parts of you which are harder to work through, for one reason or another.
I find, personally, that Aboriginal Drum & Pow Wow music pulls out an emotion in me that is so overwhelming that I normally end up in tears. Celtic music mellows me out and lets me slide into a happy place in my mind and let’s me stay there for a while. Rock music let’s me pretend that I’m real tough and no one can hurt me, which is nice in small doses.
Do you use music to create and shape your writerly projects? What emotions does music help you work through?
