I’m going to risk swerving into hippy territory here, but everything is music – or perhaps more properly, everything can be perceived as music.

When it comes down to it, music is something happening over time. Anything you experience can come under this classification. Of course, most of us demand more of music than random sounds – but my point is not to spend your life trying to perceive everything as music and being awed by it, but to be open to that option.

The moon makes music, and the stars and the trees. I know, it all sounds a bit new age – but I think that when you are open to experiencing anything as music, you open yourself up to new and greater inspiration.

Make Better Music is updated every Tuesday. To catch up on the series search for ‘Dave Graham’.
