What is music to you? What does it give you?

"Music is an exit from our personal darkness, one that allows us the freedom to be someone we would hesitate to be in reality. Music has been my antidote helping me to overcome divorce, love, tragedy and family issues all while allowing me to create a universe that is separate from this world." - David, EFD "The world would feel empty without music.. There's just something about certain harmonies and melodies that give you a positive feeling that is hard to express in words." - Mike, EFD "Music is feeling and emotion. It can bring you up in times of sadness and inspire, energize ad get you through a tough time. I can't imagine myself doing anything else." - Chris, EFD "I use several delay and reverb pedals to make an ambient wash that makes the atmosphere similar to what Pink Floyd or Radiohead would do. There is more to music than just the music; I think that musicians experience things nobody else gets to." - Eric, EFD
