Exploring the Concreteness of Human Experience Through Classical Music

How does music make  us human? How does meaning arise from nothing but sounds without lyrics? How  does this given "meaning" shape the concreteness of the human  experience? Using these questions, I explore the the essence of music apart  from it's existence and creation by composers. In exploring this existential  theme of absent inherent meaning, one can come to understand music as a  language and an essence that facilitates human connection, emotion, and  imagination.
