Can You Hear the Music Playing? by Cody Rasmussen

Music. If there is a single thing that has maintained itself throughout the ages, it is music. Humans have been keen on the creation of music since prehistoric times. Before the creation of musical instruments, the greatest instrument a person could have was their own voice. From singing around the fire to various ceremonies, it was a part of human culture and it has only expanded since then. Singing is a part of modern life, where you can hear it coming from the smallest child to the oldest adult. As long as they are able to take a breath, you will hear voices in the air. Even though some may be off key.

Music can be found in various forms now, from the vocals to the various instruments that are used to play the music. Flutes and trumpets, pianos and guitars, even various parts of the body apart from the vocal cords have become musical instruments. From soothing classical to the blaring of heavy metal, music shapes to each person’s own desires. Music is an idea that connects the entire world together. If we continue to create music, we will continue to show who we are as humans.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
- Friedrich Nietzsche
