has been developed, there are so many types of music that you can choose and listen to.
Everybody has a different point to listen to music; one might listen for their sad, inspiration,
ease. It depends on what situation makes you want to hear a song. It is no matter that music
soothes or encourages us, because music always has an effect on us.
As I observed, it’s amazing that music is a part of human being. Almost everybody in the
world likes to listen to music. Some people may like to watch T.V or some people may like to
play sports but listening to music is their unexceptional. Some places in the world have no a lot
of materials to create sound of music, but people still discover some ways to create sound. For
example, the didgeridoo is an instrument created by Indigenous Australians of northern
Australia, and that is made from natural wood.
Music is like a bridge to let listeners walk across and get to the song writers’ feeling. To
be interacted with music, we should not just use our ears to hear the sound, but our mind
should be used as an important part as well. In fact, a lot of people listen to music without any
consideration. Sometimes music is just a tool to make a place has better atmosphere such as in
a restaurant, but we never really listen to it earnestly. In other words, this is seemed to coincide
with a statement that has written by Copland. To expand, Copland has categorized the ways of
how people listening to music. One of them is the sensuous plane which already mentioned
previously. The sensuous plan is a simplest way to listen to music. Normally, people listen to
music for their pleasure. There is music at a party, wedding, funerals, or even while we are
driving on the road, it helps our minds go along with an activity we are in. The second way is
called the expressive plane. All of the music has its meaning, it expresses how people feel at a
particular time, evoke our thoughts, memories and feelings. Whenever music has a reflection of
us, our situation or our background, we always feel that music touch us. To support this idea, I
was driving on the road with the radio was on, once the hip hop beat
and some fast conversation seemed like somebody is muttering has begun with “whatever
happened to the values of humanity, whatever happened to the fairness and equality, instead
of spreading love, we are spreading animosity” . I started to listen to it with my contemplation,
and I found down that the text in the song is about how our world is turning into selfishness.
Then I realized to what’s happening to our world such as wars, the recession of economy,
animosity that leading us away from unity, or discrimination. This song has such a great
expression and very touched. I can feel in the same way with the song writer does perfectly.
The third way is called sheerly plane. For my understanding, everything that makes sound is
music such as running water, wind, footsteps, croak, and etc. If you can imagine these elements
could be in the music, you are not too far from listening music by the third way. Listen to music
by the sheerly plane must use some skill to hear what materials are used. Melodies that are
created in music and rhythms that are mixed in are such a beautiful sound. People who are
alive to music on this musical plane might be addicted to the sound of music easily. As an
illustration, Mr.Holland is a musician and infatuated with the melody and rhythm of music. He
lives his passionate life by composing music. He is a very intelligent musician. At the...
