“Music is the universal language of mankind.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

We turn to music for a variety of reasons: seeking to contain feelings that overwhelm us, to find a place where they can overflow freely.

Music is a universal language of the soul that can awaken unique emotions, sensations and memories. Music can be from any culture or country and in any language; but it is still capable of making us happy or sad or making us cry or dance.

Music works this magic on human beings since time immemorial. In all ages and civilisations there has been this form of expression, so rich in styles and genres.

We turn to music for a variety of reasons: seeking to contain feelings that overwhelm us, to find a place where they can overflow freely. At other times, we come together to dance and let the rhythms of the music set the rhythm of the party. We also seek out melodies to calm ourselves, to study or work, and many other reasons.

According to studies, the influence of music on our mind is very powerful as musical notes “generate” energy. The problem comes when this energy cannot be expended through physical activity. In that sense, “loud music” is great for situations that require energetic or competitive behaviour.

Valderrama argues that musical notes could relax us. This is achieved with those genres that have more regular, slower rhythms and the volume is not so loud. Some pieces of classical, instrumental or soft pop music help to calm us down. They are even used in rooms where radiotherapy or aggressive medical treatments are carried out.

Science has been able to establish that musical rhythms stimulate different areas of the brain. Research from the University of Florida suggests that musical rhythms offer more brain activation than any other known stimulus.

Music strengthens learning and memory, regulates stress-related hormones, evokes experiences and memories, affects heartbeat, blood pressure and pulse, and modulates brainwave speed.

Incredibly, cows give more milk when Mozart sonatas are played and plants flower more when there is music in the background. The key is to find the rhythm that can favour us in each specific situation.

Let us learn to listen to good music, to play an instrument, to sing and to enjoy the true language of the soul: music. And this is the case with Lucien Sur. He is a musician, singer, composer, poet.
