1989 a young lad sitting in the back of his dad’s Ford Escort was reading the adventures of superman whilst his dad was buying stock at the fish market to sell later at their chip shop. Finally, they were leaving, as the journey back to the shop commenced a track began to play on the radio cassette, that’s when it all started.
As the music engrossed me, I started to experience feelings that were not familiar to me. I was at a loss for words the tears just came, one after the other. No predictions or warning signs — Just the simple truth. A child who knew nothing about melody or rhythm was being consumed by frequencies that made him feel both small and powerful.
But what makes music so powerful?
To explore this energy, we have created our band Reveal.
In future blogs we will explore our relationship with music and the manner it connects us all.
