04.20.2013 “Renaissance Edition”

It’s interesting to note that my music listening tends to go backwards in time.

What puzzles me is the fact that many music listeners are intent on listening to the “new music”. Well, what IS that, exactly? And something might be ancient, but if you’ve come across it for the first time, it is essentially, new!

In a world where much of today’s music is driven to sell albums and MP3s, the music industry has created music for the masses, based on what the audience’s attitudes and knowledge of what music is all about. In other words, music is like food; and much of pop music is kind of like candy. Candy is fun to eat, but like one Jazz musician put it… it’s candy but don’t call it food.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that popular music is all fine and dandy, but the more serious music, the one that provides sustenance and nourishment will be the music that has stood the tests of time. Thus, my music listening tends to go backwards in time as I study all the music of the past that suddenly interests me.

That said, I’ve been getting into Renaissance Music and Earlier forms of Music recently.

But as you can see, I try to listen to a LOT of music. I like to mix it up, if you will.
