We were never in this business of being mindblown for reasons other than music, and yes, this is still dealing with music, but Mark Vickness goes in so much deeper in his musical creation, “Interconnected”. There’s artistic, then there’s artistic artistic because he uses this opportunity of music to express the interconnectedness of humanity and all things through the universe. Well, who’s to say that music is not the universal language that can connect us all.
The material on Interconnected was born of deep reflection on the inner workings of life; childhood traumas, modern struggle, simple joys, profound sadness, lived wisdom and the joy of awareness.
We are afraid, intrigued, hesitant, and excited all at the same time. We are all for higher learning and achieving higher learning through music is the perfect outlet for many of us to embark. When we learn through music, it can be such a beautiful thing because the connection we have with what we are learning takes a new stance in our lives. Some us learn through the wisdoms of life or through the teachings of others, but we can all agree that to learn it takes participation.
We have to actively seek and participate in what we want to learn because knowledge without action are just facts we memorize. That’s our opinion and we’d love to discuss it with all of our readers and listeners because this a topic that we can dive deep in for hours.
One thing that many of our listeners can agree on is that “Interconnected” challenges our critical thinking skills and challenges the way we listen to this music. Mark Vickness challenges us to not just listen for the sake of listening, but to listen and interpret. We are all one human race with the same goal of living, connected.
