Like a journey, music happens in time. Music takes us places. It describes places. Music is a place. Monday through Friday, May 3-7, from 12-4, a.m. and p.m., I’ll be your tour guide on Q2, offering you some musical journeys.
For me, music can be a transporting experience. I can’t claim to have been taken to a higher level of understanding or perception -- maybe I’m carrying too much metaphysical luggage for that -- but I can be carried along, engrossed in the movement of sound through time.
And it’s an interesting phenomenon that music is so effective at depicting landscapes. Where have you traveled via music? What music transports you?
