(2) More recently, Susanne Langer argues that although we understand music as symbol, because we are so caught up in seeing symbolic form function like language we tend to want to make music into a language.

This kind of appreciation is possible with music. Music we've never heard before can be immediately appreciated as music, but semantics, like memory, must always be a response to what is already familiar. My concern is how to proceed. If I can only register verbally what has already become familiar through cognitive means, my work with language is not directed toward spurring meaning for the first time. Has there ever been a first time in regard to comprehending language?
Music is a category of art all of its own. It has a strong power (per se) because it complements the being. It is pleasing to us without our even noticing most times that this is what it accomplishes. Music is more satisfying than the feeling of working on a mathematical equation; it touches our souls and reflects us inwardly and completely. It is a precise construct and can’t be held in equal comparison with the visual arts.
Because expectation is largely a product or stylistic experience, music in a style with which we are totally unfamiliar is meaningless.” (35) Meaningless is too strong a word. Do we have to completely understand the relationships between each musical stimulus in order to obtain some kind of meaning from it?

With rare exception, adult humans are biased to process sound in terms of the relationship between pitches. We have no difficulty understanding a word spoken by two different individuals, even in a tonal language, since it is the relationship between pitches rather than the absolute pitch that is used to convey intonational and lexical meaning. Most adult humans are also effortlessly able to recognize two versions of a melody as the same if all intervals between its notes are preserved, even when the starting pitch is different. In contrast, songbirds show a tendency to perceive sound in terms of absolute rather than relative pitch (Hulse & Cynx, 1985). While this difference has long been thought to reflect fixed genetic differences in the neural processing of sound between the two groups, we explore the possibility that these distinct human and avian tendencies arise due to the importance of relative and absolute pitch to communicative ontogeny in the two groups.
I suppose you do not have to sing at all if an instrumental piece is what you are after; for the sake of argument, lets say you want to sing and play your own backing. Jon Huntress of Lyrical Line (2000) says, “You can write about ANYTHING! That’s the beauty of song writing-there are no rules”. Make some notes about the story you want to tell or message you plan to get across. Writing it down can help in case you might forget.
There is a large focus on the freedom of individual artistic license unlike in Korea were the pop genre focuses more on pop groups rather than the individual. The Korean music industry is more controlled and contained to certain companies much like how the American music industry used to be and in some ways still is.

Popularity is not an indication of success or aesthetic value, it is simply an display of current trends going around in mass culture. True aesthetic beauty can be found regardless of the form of art presented, so long as perspective is relative to the individual observing it. Folk music may not be as widespread or pervasive as many other genres, but the simplistic styles, calming melodies, and gorgeous lyrics will always provide the perfect connection between soul and music.
