To be honest, I'm only here for the free gigs and events...

My favourite music moment

The task of selecting my most treasured music moment is something I find challenging. Mentally sifting through memorable and genuine moments relating to music warms my heart, however I lack the decisive nature to select something so specific.

 

Music is not something I am inherently passionate about. My adoration for the art slowly grew throughout my teenage life. I did not see music as expression. I did not see music as a tool for change. I did not see music as a thought provoker. Music was a distraction. A short- lived euphoric fever dream that I took for granted.

 

Then along came my iPod Touch 3rd Generation. 12 year-old me was shocked when I learnt I could store videos and music onto this device using gift vouchers, I began to browse music videos, I decided to download bands I had somewhat heard of, Nirvana and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Who were they? I had no idea, it was just a flex to have cool music videos on your iPod at the time! It wasn’t long before I really sat there and indulged in what I had just downloaded.


My first time watching Smells Like Teen Spirit is a vivid flashback, I was amazed by the erratic nature of the clip, the opening riff, the setting, the lyrics. I had never heard anything like it. This made me feel a certain way and gave a deeper meaning behind the art form. Since then my taste and adoration of music has blossomed into an integral part of my life, where I strive to turn it into a lifestyle.
