MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

I had an interesting conversatiion with my local Doctor the other day. He is a Medical Doctor but also a Homeopath.

When I enter his waiting room, I immediately feel ' at home'!! it's spotlessly clean and comfortable and there is ' Classical' Music playing quietly all the time.

 However ,when one enters his surgery it's an entirely different environment. There's chaos everywhere, piles of files which he must leaf through to find your details and further piles of papers on his desk. Never mind, He is a bit of a Genius in my estimation!!

 

  On my last visit, I talked to him about my concern regarding the constant 'noise' we are subjected to in supermarkets and shops....they call it Music!! It's a sort of 'bump..bump..bump...bump and sometimes with a human voice ....at least I think it's human.....screaming raucously into a microphone. It's referred to as ' Pop Music'.

 Now there's nothing wrong in my estimation with Pop Music  ,provided it's not played at a volume known to be harmful to health but the distorted digital sound I refer to here is not Music in any sense of the word.

In the first place it focuses on a very loud persitent ' beat' . This is a strong focus ( albeit unconscious ) which is designed to be hypnotic and it certainly achieves that in most people. As my Doctor pointed out ,it means that people are slightly detached from themselves enough to pick up a product that they might never actually bother with in other circumstances.....clever isn't it?? However my main concern is it's also potentially damaging to health because we are subjected to it on a regular daily basis in every shop and supermarket.

I took a further step today and went to the hairdresser in my road , who have a ghastly concoction of this noise going the whole time. I explained and asked if I could make a disc with a different kind of Music for them to try. She looked doubtful but did agree.....you never know until you try!!! I'lll keep you informed. xx
