According to Zen Buddhist and interpreter of Chinese and Indian philosophies to the West, Alan Watts (1915-1973), the correlation between life and music is a closely knit and intertwining one.
Through his lectures and his vast audio archive, he was known for his ability to unravel the complexities of life for the layperson through his eloquence and humour.
A series of videos (created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park) were made from some of Alan’s famous audio recordings. The one I’ve included below is the one of the videos that has resonated with me the most.
It’s simply called Life and Music. Enjoy.
