The music of life

by maddrunkgenius

Music swings this way and that and it’s all mathematical formulas when you get right down to it. It’s all about math and using math to make art, to make the notes that people want to hear in a way they want to hear them. But it ain’t the notes that makes it go, it’s the flow, dig?

The notes make it music and the beat just gives it movement, but that’s the most important part.

See, life is like the notes. Life is the events, like the beats are events. They stand still in time, waiting for context. A note out of context doesn’t mean anything. It’s just a sound. It needs all the other notes around it. A moment of time doesn’t mean anything, it needs what comes before and after. It’s all cause and effect, see. Cause causes the effect to be effected. But unless you’ve got the rhythm, unless you’ve got the beat, nothing happens. The notes are just there and they don’t play no music. Life don’t go unless you’ve got the flow, dig?
