Music


Who invented music?

Nobody knows. Music has been around since before humans came into existence. Birds sing, water drips, leaves rustle, fire crackles, and so on. Caveman used to make music. It wasn't "invented" but discovered. Everyone hums, taps, snaps, beats, etc. Music goes as far back as human existence. No one single person can be credited with "inventing" music. Music has existed since prehistoric times and predates the written word.

We all love music. Whatever kind of music - loud, soft, heavy, country, jazz, rock, blues, world, metal, ballad, folk, international.. And on and on and on.. Can you say that the genre i like is nice, and what you listen to is boring? Or can you say that i listen to more high class music than you? I don't think so. Its subjective. Different preferences ba. No doubt some music cost more than the others, because of branding? Or the atmosphere of the environment? Or occasions these music caters to?

I've watched before a concert in the Esplanade's theatre, damn good sounding. Almost the perfect place to enjoy music.



I've watched concerts at the indoor and outdoor stadium, and Expo. Happening, very high throughout, was also enjoyable.

I've stood beside a handicap man singing and playing his guitar at the crowded underpass of Orchard road. The simplest tune from him at that moment could be nothing less compared to those mentioned earlier.

Music affect one's mood. On different occasions, a song will get to you in a different way. This song never fails to touch me..
