back in december, i created a project called #whymusic. the concept was the direct result of an article i had written about the power of music and why it plays such an integral role in not only my life and, of course, little city, but why music has played such an integral role in making me the person i am today. i really fell in love with the idea of having many different voices tell the story of their own connection with music through images and words – at the risk of over embellishing, i will only say that the responses i’ve received thus far have made me smile, laugh, think and most importantly, feel an intimate connection to the contributor, despite my real life relationship with them. that really is the goal of the project; to create a collective community through art, one that shares the same values as you and opens your eyes to values you didn’t even know you cherished.
i plan on releasing sets of images in intervals throughout the rest of the year, if the project continues on the road that it’s on. you’ll also be able to find a gallery of the images through the menu at the top of your screen. i’m so grateful to the people who have contributed heartfelt responses so far – you’re all amazing. so, without further ado, here are the first (lucky number) thirteen answers to #WHYMUSIC:
