‘The Reality of Music’

By Thomas Folger

UGA Undergraduate Student

"This clip of music is a monotonous canon of different sound effects that musicians make outside of their instruments. It is meant to showcase the drab lifestyle of practice that many musicians face as opposed to the glamour of performance that an audience perceives. Between the sound of a metronome, water filling up, tearing of paper, writing in music, and the depressed "ready play" at the end are the epitome of the emotions musicians feel when they are forcing themselves to practice beyond their own enjoyment."
