In a hurried world it's so refreshing to hear this. The time is taken, without apologies or excuses, to weave this emotional web that catches our hearts.

According to your precise and wonderful compliment you seem to be aware of the attentional gate theory! I´ve been tryin to express this with this piece! Thank you for your so open minded and sensitive listening, wade!

I wasn't aware of this theory, but think that it's certainly logical. Chopin didn't require it but knew that changing the tempo engaged the listener's attention, ultimately giving a more personal/emotional response.

In a world of computer (drum machine?) generated "mindless" beats, it's engaging and refreshing to hear music (like yours) with less typical tempi and the use of dynamics. As the theory seems to indicate we engage and use more of our faculties when there is variation and more than one area of focus.

Two of music's most powerful elements of communication are missing from much of today's popular music: dynamics (variation in volume) and variations in tempi. Each is capable of powerful communication.

At the risk of further proving myself an old fart, I'd call much of today's contemporary music a "dumbing-down" to suit a lowest common denominator. Music seems dominated by spoken or sung words and dance beats.

Everyone (subliminally?) recognizes how music (that isn't dance music or sung) is used 90% of the time to give the emotional context for films. Does society only want to engage emotionally with music at the movies or need to be told (in words) how they should be reacting?

...Sorry about the rant.

I entirely agree with your thoughts Wade! Thank you! Such a statement here could be seen as much more important than a 43000th track upload! :)

I read this, wade, and I have to subscribe your view. Isolated on this beautiful isle of aesthetics and art, far from the influence of god mammon, and liberated from our compulsion for appreciation, we have here nearly paradise...

What more is there to say, to feel, to observe, to delight in, to dream, to enjoy and to wonder about such extraordinary musical magic that everyone hasn't already complimented on? I'm blessed! :)
