violins

just heard someone say

they love violin

well violin is related by root to

2 english words -

violate and violence


it in an instrument which

creates screeching violence for the ears

and violates the listener

prime reason behind the horribleness of

western orchestra sound

replicated religiously by bollywood

in their own band/brand of annoyance

so-called carnatic music died

the day they started using the violin


what they are actually saying is that they love violence

funnily

they won't be able to

say the same so freely

it's strange that the violin has gained so much popularity.. it's an instrument whose most natural obvious sound easily causes pain to the listener.. the arduous technique of violin bowing is to try and beautify what naturally produces a pain howl..

Who else but PT Could relate the musical Violin to Violence and Violate?

PT your thoughts are really out of the box.
You amaze me with what you write!!!

With respect:

What if it is played out of love, for love?

The ego has no place, never struggled here?

There is beauty in this howl, no? The Divine is not pleased by a child who loves this violin—not because he or she was pressed to play—but simply because there is magic, and pain in simply in the ear of the be-listener?

love is a highly misused word
please refer to the 'love' blog
if it is love one would not want to violate anyways

beauty is also a misuderstood term
beauty is in divinity/perfection
something which is quite
explainable now in terms of sacred geometry, golden symmetry ...

ego is also another word used
without proper understanding

what you are saying jenn
is not at all coherent
it only serves to support
illusory unreality
through imprecision ...
it was evil demiurge's minions who came up with beauty in pain maxims

this is so brilliant ! no-one but You could bring to light the true nature of the violin ! "violate and violence" - really it is so true ! any honest listener will be able to admit to the unpleasant effect this instrument has on one's ears ! it definitely only finds its true calling when used as a soundtrack to a horror film !

really great how You bring in the bollywood angle too. and very poignant statement that so-called carnatic music died the day they started using violin.

You are a true luminary & the bringer of truth ! You state so plainly what others refuse to see !

I Bow !
