The Merits of Music

When it comes to music, there are nearly endless ways to enjoy what is one of humanity’s oldest art forms. There are countless genres, for one thing, and there are also many ways to listen to music, and all of them have their own merits, their own strengths and weaknesses. So, in essence, you could go to a rock concert, listen to a jazz record, or anything and everything in between. The digital age has also made listening to recorded music much, much easier, not to mention music videos. The world of music is a fascinating one, and we have so much music at our fingertips these days. However, it’s worth examining the way we listen to music and what that might say about us.

For example, let’s talk about concerts. The concert is a tried and true, time honored tradition, and for good reason. There’s a certain authenticity that a unique performance of a piece of music has to offer. You’re right there with the artist, and the performance you’re hearing might be a piece that’s played over and over, but it will never be in quite the same way that you’re hearing it. You can get dressed up to the nines in your new shoes from Clarks, grab a couple friends, and hit the road to go to a performance by your favorite band, and it’s an experience that’s hard to beat. That’s not to even mention the other audience members. Another selling point is the dense gathering of like minded folks who share your love for the band in question, and all of you are going wild.

And, then there’s recordings to consider. Recorded music is a far more recent invention that the concert, of course, and it’s a whole different ballpark really. Recordings are the only way to hear a lof the music we have access to, because these recordings last virtually forever, even after the death of the artists responsible. However, even during the lifetime of the artists in question, recorded music has other unique properties that separate it from live performances.Simply put, a recorded piece of music is as perfect as humanly possible and maintains that same level of perfection upon every playback. In some cases, this also means having a more nuanced and experimental performance, as well. Take the Beatles for example, who withdrew from touring later in their career to do just that.
