There are certain times when some sound or note just kind of causes this resonance in your mind - a sudden change in your state of consciousness that it all but impossible to explain. Haunting, altering, and magnificent, music that taps into your mind. You have been in this state before, but you can't tell when. The way it feels is welcoming and personal, but contains a heavy undertone of 'confusional' euphoria - Along with a struggling to contain this feeling in thought or apply it to something tangible. However, efforts of successfully doing so are useless, and even though you may understand that, you realize that this unique form of confusion is what makes the feeling what it is. All this, contained in a few seconds. Unfortunately it is usually transient, and can only be experienced during listening, but this effect is what I seek for in music.
I love piano. I love composing and playing pieces from genres such as: minimal, ambient, new age, and classical. I am also into alternative medicine and love the idea of music therapy (and hope to do something in that field as side work). Music affects me on such a deep level I easily get lost in it. It is basically my way of life, and I could not embrace it more. It is amazing, the power of simple sound. Sounds corny, but I mean every word.
