Music-minded - (The Sun)
Music was the fuel for Broad-minded. It is the driving force, the energy, the passion behind the enterprise. Like the Sun Music provides us with many things. Whether you sing, play a music instrument, dj, provide music/sound for therapy or maybe listen to music, dance to music, relax to music etc it's used widely for providing or for receiving. Music is creative, expressive, healing, stimulating, energising, unifying , calming, inspiring. I could go on and on! It provides us with many of our emotional feelings such as excitement, bliss, joy, for all of our life experiences. It's an important aspect of wellness and as such is a vital cog in the wheel of broad-minded and the world in general..
There will be articles, interviews and features relating to all the positive aspects that music provides from inspiration stories, the significance of musical expression, the benefits of music, artist developments, music reviews/events from around electronic, alternative and experimental music and much more!
