In times immemorial inspired women and men would ignite ceremonies and rituals by doing chants and rhythms on their organic instruments to induce chants, inspire visions and most importantly heal the wounds of their tribe. These methods were transformative. It was magick, in other words. It had the capacity to change the people, make them think differently from this power they possessed. The shaman (or sorcerer) had the ability to go into the depth of the unconscious and bring back a creative force to his ordinary state to change the regular frequency of his reality.
In contemporary times we have concerts that are strikingly reminiscent of these ceremonies and rituals of antiquity, but the importance of such things are missing because of the ubiquitous political spells and corporate depravity in today's world that tries to marginalize anything that has real power for people. However, such great things can be marginalized, but not completely dismissed by everyone in the world.
As you hear people sometimes say " When I heard that musick I envisioned this.It brought to this place" Or you even hear writers & artists say they listen to Music while they create their Art... And that's the power Musik has, to alter your consciousness. To bring you into different places. And needless to say, it has the power to heal.
Few days ago I watched an interview of the members of EyeHateGod and one of the members of the group said" A kid told us that our musik helped him get through his suicidal tendencies, saying he would have killed himself if it wasn't for our musik to alleviate his pain." And that's the healing powers musik possesses. For that matter, would you ever hear anybody say school, politics and my job helped me get through my life troubles?!. No! Musik is always mentioned in these matters, or any other forms of Art. Because Musik has the power to cause transformation in people. It gives them inspiration to go further, to think differently. And to do different stuff & activities with their lives. Hence Musicians being The Shamans (or Sorcerers)!
As Ufomammut said in an interview once" Musik should be considered a religion" Or Musik could even be considered a form of Magick!! Which sounds better to my ears
