In class we watched a charismatic film called Music from the Inside Out, a movie about music and how it influences musicians and people around the world all day everyday. The main point of the creation of this movie was to show people that rhythm and beat either in music or not has always been a part of the natural environment for as long as anyone can remember.
Throughout the movie, many musicians told their stories of how they became to be part of the Philadelphia Orchestra. They describe in detail their thoughts, emotions and past experiences with their instruments and playing music. Many of the musicians stated that playing music relaxes the mind and soul and also that when they play they seem to cure their pain and bring their bodies to peace. Many of the musicians involved in the Philadelphia Orchestra had been early learners. Most began to play at 4 or 5 years of age; thats incredible!Many musicians say that the way you play the instrument, is the way your true personality is. But many musicians feel differently; while some think that music brings out inner personality, others say that personality has nothing to do with it. Instrumentalists who have this feeling with their music had also said that they have different personalities on stage rather than when they are just taking to a group of friends.
When performers such as those of the Philadelphia Orchestra perform they try to make the sounds of their instruments sound like nature. They keep the sounds as close to a real voice would sound if the piece were to be sung.
