More thoughts about wordsmiths

Comments: 0

Following on from the thoughts I expressed about the ascension of rhyming wordsmiths in the record business, perhaps it would be helpful to provide a context.

Words have power. When they are put together with talent and flair, they can convey a lot of meaning.

Much has been written about the struggle for dominance between words and music – in songs, music dramas and many other art forms that depend on these two means of making symbols working together.

We all have our preferences. I have been accused of being “too musical” on many occasions. On the other hand, I would not describe pure instrumental music as my main area of interest – as an artist or even as a listener.

Maybe I’m one of those people interested in finding balance in the harmonious co-existence of words and music.
