SPIRITUAL - Xtreme Music

SPIRITUAL - Xtreme Music

2 The inspiration to

2 The inspiration to create this book series began by considering the question: “what if there is more to music than meets the ear?”. Music is all around us, and throughout the world cultures, communities, and creeds have embraced The Spiritual Significance of Music. I am inspired by the music and musicians that have continued to shape the direction of this project. My hope is that these interviews will give encouragement and inspiration to many readers. How does music and spirituality impact the body, mind, soul, and spirit?

afTerlife dJ and producer I was once told by my Greek friend that the word for Art in Greek is “Therapeia” which actually means therapy. He went on to say that artists create their own therapy in order to make sense of the world and stay sane. If the therapy is good then it helps other people too. In my case this is very true as I try to counter the negative energy in the world by creating uplifting sounds and grooves that make me feel good, and other people tell me it makes them feel good too. when I’m creating music I’m in a different zone, very calm and deeply content and in touch with other parts of my being. Many writers say that they simply hear melodies and words and are simply the intermediary between this dimension and higher forces. I don’t know if that’s true but it feels right. Music is a powerful force capable of creating different emotions in the listener and we should be careful what we do with it. 3
