This week's devotion was written by NLC bass section member, Dave Michel. Get ready to embrace paradox!
This is Philosophy of Music 101. I am your instructor, Mr. Michel (M-I-no T-C-H-E-one L).
My goal for this class is to identify some distinctive aspects of music as an art form, and explore how music might inform life and spirituality. This course being about philosophy, just about everything I say today will be derivative and based on other's work. This won't surprise those of you who've had any of my other classes - derivative is just another way of saying "relational.” This is not a bad thing.
