The Weekly Challenge, 15th March 2021 – Musical Memories15th March 2021
This week’s challenge is from David in Kent…
David reviews music online and enjoys discovering and reviewing new tracks by independent artists on Twitter.
“Music has always been a central part of my life. From the time I got my first cassette player at the age of 9, music has been my constant companion. For every generation, whatever the technology, the feeling of discovering a new song that becomes your favourite never changes.”
This week we are reflecting on our musical memories. “Music can be an escape, a comfort, a passion. It is probably the nearest thing we have to a time machine so buckle up and let your imagination loose as you remember the music that has defined you.”
Capture a favourite musical memory.
Tap into the emotion you felt when you first put the record on the turntable, the cassette in the player, the CD in the machine or streamed the song online. You could draw, paint or take a photo of an album cover or recreate a live concert setting. Play some music out loud and see where it takes you!
David gets us inspired with his examples, pictured below…
If you have more time…
Revisit your life through music, stopping the journey at the most memorable points and writing down the tracks that are important to you and the memories they evoke. You could choose just one event, or you could think of eight to make up your own Desert Island Discs.
What did your favourite musical moment mean to you then, and what does it mean to you now?
Share your work with friends and family or keep it for yourself.
