Quote from Ian McEwan I read recently, just a really good one I'd like to share.

"There are these rare moments when musicians together touch something sweeter than they've ever found before in rehearsals or performance, beyond the merely collaborative or technically proficient, when their expression becomes as easy and graceful as friendship or love. This is when they give us a glimpse of what we might be, of our best selves, and of an impossible world in which you give everything to others, but lose nothing of yourself."


Kinda seems to just sum up the purpose of music in a way.

yes, really good quote,

Thank you for sharing,

Music in the end is a means of communication like language. But it's even better because you can skip the words,

Yeah this sums it up well. This moment is something every band is looking for during performance/rehearsals.
