The power of music – Music for the Soul part 1
Posted on Monday 29th March 2010 by Louise Carron Harris
If people ask me why I set up Sentiment the usual reply is ‘Music’!
Knowing how music can vastly change an image you are watching, an event you are attending or an emotion that you are experiencing is the main reason for driving Sentiment forward.
The right music at a funeral or an event can leave an impact that will last forever in your heart. The right music set to photos or video means you will watch it over and over again feeding from the comfort of both music and imagery.
Music has the power to influence your mood, manipulate your perceptions and make a situation greater.
I am well aware that not everyone is a music boff, in fact I have been incredibly surprised that about 50% of our clients struggle with choosing the music they want for their tribute videos and photo montage DVDs. In this instance we get the honourable opportunity to understand their tastes and help them choose something that’s appropriate and meaningful. Whatever age, generation or walk of life, music is there for everyone. Music for a Funeral or Video Tribute or just to listen to does not have to stick to the traditional songs that is set by the ‘Norm’ nor to the words need to reflect the exact moment – there are a million of songs out there, if its your / their choice there will be no question that it is right - music is personal and beautiful and there to be enjoyed – we all have music that represents us.
Here is our first instalment of ‘Sentiment’s Music for the Soul (Part 1) ‘… There is something here for everyone. It’s taken from past clients and music ideas from friends and family. Please do send us your music choices and we will be sure to add them to our playlists.
It’s the 1st compilation of 10 playlists to be launched over the next few months.
for those of you without spotify - I would recommend joining – if you love music you’ll love spotify, its free!
