musical thoughts

I’ve had music on the brain the last 24 hours or so.  My wip involves a musician and I’m on day 2 of digging through my iTunes library looking for writing music.   Today I’m looking for the hero’s music, he’s the musician, the hard part is narrowing down the list as I could easily just dump an entire artist’s catalog into the playlist. 

The other musical thought in my head is this.  I wonder if music effects other people the way it does me.  Okay, I know it has to, I’m not that singularly special.  Music has never been just something to fill the quiet in a room.  I’ve never been a passive listener of music.  I use music as mood therapy.   I can tell by the aggitation whether I’ve listened to any music in a couple days.  With my previous mp3 player (the cute little silver brick) I would spend at least 30 minutes before bed cycling through music.  I’d be tucked warmly into bed, the lights out, the room lit only by the blue glow of the digital display cycling through whatever music I was in the mood for that night.  

There is some music I feel in my soul, some I feel in my bones, and other still I feel in my blood. 

Music is a mystery to me.  It’s about the one real creative art I am at a loss to create myself.  I’ve taken enough art classes, spent time with enough artists to understand the techniques.  But music, to make sound from silence, it’s alchemy to me.  

I think I was going someplace with this but I no longer remember.
