"I believe: that music is not meant to convey a message, or tell a story. Instead, it is to provide entertainment, set a mood, or spark the imagination. If music fails to do any of these things, then it is not music. It is ~~~sound."

This is an introductory clip; an unveiling of myself on Newgrounds. So yeah, hello and crap.

Some people try to find ulterior meaning in everything that they don't completely understand. A man sees a bright white object in the sky at night, so he thinks it must be a god. Another man reads a poem by an author who died hundreds of years ago. The poem is cryptic, and the meaning is hard to work out. Thus the man decides that every line must have a meaning beyond that of what was actually written. Finally, a man listens to a song that another man sang, and is so influenced that he cannot bear himself to believe that the lyrics didn't mean "something more".

Personally, I don't believe that art should have an ulterior meaning. I see a bright object in the sky, I see it as the moon. I read a poem by an ancient author, I see it as a narrative story. I listen to a song that a man in my generation sings, and I see it as a means of providing entertainment. Stop trying to find meaning in everything. Life is complicated enough as it is.
