yesterday i published an article on my blog, little city, called “the power of music.” in just one day, i received an overwhelming response to the concept, and it became clear just how universal the language of music really is. i decided to develop the idea into a collective project that would allow voices from (hopefully) all over the world to weigh in on what music means to them.
the idea itself is simple: think about what makes music such an important, influential factor in your life. write it down. take a photo of what you’ve written. send it to me.
describe a musical experience that changed your life. explain why you think music is the universal language. name a song that has helped you through a hard time in your life. write down why music is essential to us. tell me about a band that has inspired you. answer in any way that you want, but make sure that you answer “why music?”
your contribution can take any form you want, as long as it is less than 25 words. type it on the computer, write it in the sand, cut letters out of a magazine, draw it, tattoo it, photoshop it, paint it, sharpie it, whatever you want – then simply take a photo of it, and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
