What is the true spirit of music?

Home More advice Music

Im so sick and tired of the music industry. I feel like that all the good songs get no air time. So it got me thinking, what makes something music. Is it more than just meaningless tonal patterns? And what makes music good? There's not a lot of appreciation for Brahm's melodies or Pachabel's chord progressions. Or even more modern composers like Copland, Bernstein and my personal favorite Bacharach. The ones that get all the attention are the the pop and rock icons of today. Electronics have replaced the need for real instrumentalists. What took years of study in conservatory now can be uploaded onto your computer in less than 30 seconds. So what is good music? Is some music better than others? And what makes us like music in the first place...?
