Music is something that generally tends to stay in a constant state of flux, which basically means that it is pretty much always changing in one way or another. In spite of the fact that this is the case, it can often be difficult to wrap your head around these changes especially if you are the sort of person that really doesn’t understand all that much about music in the first place. If you want to learn about the direction in which music might just be headed in the near future, you should do yourself a favor and check out a Meneely and Van Sante show as soon as you can.
The thing that this duo is doing at the end of the day is that they are changing how playing the piano is perceived by the general public. It is important to note that the piano is a relatively old instrument, but it has not been played like this ever before. Melding cultural and traditional influences with more modern approaches to music, this duo manages to create music that might sound entirely alien to you whilst at the same time feeling inviting and comforting and almost familiar.
The music that they create incites an almost limbic response within us. It helps us to understand ourselves and makes it easier for us to relate to one another. Rather than being hostile towards new approaches to music, you should really consider leaning into how music can make you feel good about yourself and try to find the familiar in the foreign. This duo will help you do that by pushing the boundaries of what music can actually be in essence.
