Anthems of Triumph
I guess I am falling out of my love for current music because it used to stand for something. It used to mean something. The origins of the genres of music we listen to now stem from one basic form. And just as words leave your mouth as meaning falls to the wayside the more and more it is interpolated, the meaning of music as slowly deteriorated. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is something to be aware of. “To be an artist, you must be ready to confront the issues and times that plague society. It is a duty.” There isn’t really need for a call to anything. If music has lost the values that set the standard for what we stand for as a people, what does that say about those who we live with and encounter everyday. The Anthems of Triumph are dead to the ears they fall on because there is no triumph to be had in this present time. Things have changed. And I think it is an indication that maybe music, like many other forms of interpretation, are becoming obsolete as a form of movement. We are too numb to it. I truly feel like there will be other anthems of triumph, but they will have to be found in some other form that music can not compete with. And I don;t think that it is meant to.
