Music Is More Than The Sum Of Its Parts

Music is a complex amalgam of melody, harmony, tone, timbre, pitch, rhythm, tempo, instrumentation, vocals, execution, arrangement, mixing, production, distribution and marketing. However, breaking music apart is not so simple and even if it is dissected into individual elements, we never hear those isolated elements alone.
Everything that goes into the making of music is important, yet ultimately, no single element stands out as the most critical. Music is greater than the sum of it’s parts, it is alchemy. When done well, it’s like the greatest illusion or magic trick, but with one major difference - it lasts forever.
