I have recently worked out a nifty trick that allows me to embed music on wordpress, which is supposedly a paid-for function. I was so excited I started experimenting with this page right away!
Anyhow, I reckon a little music would greatly delight you readers as well. You and I, we sure love words: their expressive capacity is simply amazing. Yet absolute verbal communication is always an impossibility. Don’t you sense this clearly when you say “love,” but feel so unfulfilled since that little word alone fails miserably to convey your longing, your heartbreak, and your ecstasy?
Music offers a wonderful alternative (which I shamefully admit to disrespect until a year ago). Such limitless range of emotions within a wide gamut of sounds and without a single word – that is a conveyance of meaning without an imposition of interpretation. Isn’t it marvelous, and isn’t it the least tyrannous form of communication among all else?
But enough with talk – I’m attempting the impossible again. I will post a favorite piece from my personal library every week, either replacing them or just leaving them all here. (Tell me what you prefer.) I may add commentary, or recount how I the amateur have come to love this piece.
(This page is still a budding idea. Please, please share any requests or recommendations.)
Update: I have moved all the songs into their according categories, since it has become quite crowded here in the main page. Please refer to the individual categories in the drop-down list from this main page to indulge yourself with a musical treat of your choice.
