Music As Wallpaper – Background Music For People Who Never Stop Listening

Music As Wallpaper – Background Music For People Who Never Stop Listening

Never one to use “background music” as a derogatory term, the notion that inconspicuous music is somehow less crucial than that which makes its presence more forcefully known is like suggesting that words spoken with a whisper are invariably inferior to those cast with a scream. Background music is like wallpaper, it surrounds us and defines our environment. It reminds us of where we are welcome and tells us when we are not. It’s no more or less significant than the sight of a setting sun, or the smell of the air as summer fades to black.

ANOTHER MIX OF VERY SLOW SOUNDS…

While we mostly crave some force of personality from our music, from the soul song that councils you through heartbreak the way bartenders only do in the movies, to the dance song that gets the party started like the reckless friend who makes the night magical, but is best avoided during the day, sometimes the requirement of sound is simply to fill in blank spaces, and to cancel out the din of this unnatural world.
