25 Things That Inspire Me To Create Jewelry #22 Music

#22 Music

I need music like I need air. My studio is always filled with music of all kinds of music while I work, from Gotan Project, Bessie Smith, Tom Waits, Lupe Fiasco, Johnny Cash, The Cure, Elliot Smith, Alabama 3, Bonobo to Aphex Twin, Asian Dub Foundation, Mogwai, N.W. A. + many many more. Music keeps the blood flowin'!

This is from one of my favourite Manchester bands New Order:

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”

“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music”
:Sergei Rachmaninov

Thanks for the Tune.
Nice inspiration.
Great Taste Music.

Ahhhh very very nice quotes indeed Flash, thanx.

I really love the Rachmaniov quote. It's so true that there really isn't enough lifetime for the music, there is sooooo much out there to explore!
