Episode 1 - changing people's lives (1:12)
Hi. Let me ask you the question: what is a song?
- Popular musical creation that unites people
- Reason to be entertained
- Way to reinforce emotions
- Structured sounds
- Means to wealth
- Package to a story
- Asset to change people’s lives
Of course, all of the answers are right! During the last 15 years, I went through all the stages of perception of what a song is, in that particular order.
Danced folk dances wearing a colourful local uniform till high-school, went out with friends and had fun in clubs as a student, cried over my first heartbreak at the sound of Depeche Mode, started making songs on crappy software for joy at 20 years old, then quit my job to make a full-time living out of music by 25, and learned that storytelling is what music really is by 27.
What about changing people’s lives? I decided to do that by turning 30. That’s in 3 months from now.
