Is music a reflection of reality or is it our wishful thinking incarnate?

You know music from beethoven and mozart, or even artists todays like john williams, hans zimmer.

Or pop and rock muscians.

Welly question is this:

Is the music they make a reflection of the reality that they are experiencing in life? Or is it rather a reflection of their desire to escape the mudane parts of life?...

I can't be more clear, because its hard for me to explain.

    Music, in general, reflect every kind of emotion you can feel, place you may, or want too, go, the extent of awareness you desire to be at any given moment.

    It is the most capitalized medium on the planet and makes billions of dollars for the entertainers, (no matter how bad or good), the Agents, Label holders, and the radio stations that the Sponcers pay dearly too play this stuff.

    To some it is a Reality; however for most it will still remain Wishful Thinking !

  • Music and mathematics (circle of fifths, etc.) are one, as with all the arts; at one time. If you have ever studied music, you should know this.

    Music are the sounding notes that bring infinite peace, universally. :D

    both and nether. even in the works of one great band you fill find both. This is because that is how humans are; sometimes with sits and thinks and sometimes with just sit.

    I think it leans more to wishful thinking incarnate

    I think music is what it sounds like. If music sounds sad then it is sad. If music sounds joyous then it is joyous.

    ... historically to this day, composers and lyricists regularly alternate between these two. But although both lines of thinking are indeed seemingly different, they very easily become entwined when it comes to placing music to emotion!
