More Than You'd Ever Believe




Trance is comparable to the basis of what a story is made upon. 
There is always a setup, confrontation and resolution. (Beginning, Middle, End) However each specific individual creates and experiences their own interpretation on what that really is. I personally believe (as a producer's viewpoint) that if one was to create a melody that had the ability to change a persons perspective on an entire topic as a whole, then inception can truly be done. I also believe that there is a certain set of notes, that when played in harmony, in a certain tone, at a correct pitch can tap into a beings primeval subconsciousness and allow them to enter into "A State Of Trance". (Somewhat comparable to hypnotism) Only when said person(s) is/are in such of a state that they can truly absorb the rhythmical melodies that in return give them a feeling that cannot be described in words. 

Both the artist and viewer share this, this abnormality... But maybe I'm just doing that "thinking" thing a little too much again?? Regardless, this is my only personally view on the genre,.. even music in general and I value it with much content. Furthermore, I will continue as I have for the past 10 years with this passion and fascination in creating what I have already talked about. Money and fame were never the goal, it was always about expressing myself. Some people do it by writing poems/lyrics, painting/drawing, creating/building. I choose to produce/explore. 

This is what truly makes this genre so appealing and versatile. Not because of the way the song was made, or how popular it is, but by the influence and impact it has when heard through appreciative ears. Every song has a very real story. This is not just "music", this is emotion expressed through sound - Hacknik
