The Beauty of Well Performed Music

Mar 28, 2008
Music is an amazing thing. Uniquely human, at least here on Earth, music has the ability to lift the hearts of everyone who listens to it -- making them feel on top of the world and taking their spirit high into the sky.

Music has evolved through humanity's own evolution. Beginning as nothing but grunts eons ago, it slowly evolved into a music form, complete with born flutes and drums made out of hollowed out tree trunks.

As time went on, musical instruments, and our own musical composition, began to change and evolve. String instruments and sheet music came along, and with it came new musical forms like the violin, piano and saxophone.

Into our past century, music evolved even faster, beginning with the advent of jazz in the 1920s, which spawned rock and roll in the 1950s, which then created nearly every modern form of popular music, from pop and hip hop to grunge and heavy metal.

Music is an impressive aspect of our culture and despite all our misgivings, some of the musical pieces we create are truly revolutionary. That is the beauty of music and it is true what they say, music can tame the savage beast. It is an amazing invention of our civilization and it truly ranks as one of the greatest things our species has ever created.

Think of any civilization or colony of people, and think of them without music. It simply cannot be done because music is a part of us. It is part of our souls and it is our souls that allow us to make that amazing music.

Where will music go from here? Will it continue to evolve and will new types of musical instruments begin to appear to take the place of outdated ones? Well, if you look back 100 years, the concept of an electric guitar, turntables or synthesizers was completely foreign and inconceivable. However, for us, they are a part of our current musical regime and there is nothing to say that new, interesting forms of musical instruments will evolve in the future to continue spreading the beauty of music to us.

Every kind of music has its own beauty to it. From the soft and wonderful melodies of classical, to the angst-ridden and powerful punk genre, music is a diverse beast that occupies every realm of our civilization. Simply put, our civilization would not exist in its present form without it.

It is what allows us to make up for some of the atrocities we have committed, because perhaps there is a bit of hope left for a species that seems to kill without conviction, but can produce unbelievable beauty through the music of such individuals as Mozart.

It is a testament to our species in the diverse forms of music we have created, because it may truly be our greatest gift to the cosmos as our music blasts over the airwaves and out into the galaxy to inspire other, possible intelligent beings, with our song. Who knows what the future holds for humanity's musical talent.
