Writing music and music therapy
I enjoy writing original music. I noticed a research article on the front page of schizophrenia.com about music therapy and wanted to join and say antedotally that I believe music can be relaxing. My partner uses music and TV to take her mind off of the spirits that torment her. I write music to deal with issues and knowledge of politics. I get quite a release writing and singing music. I have played some of this music at self help groups with a band. I don't always like the making of music because musicians I have worked with are difficult people to deal with and drugs and alcohol are issues in music work. But I like the first playing of a song and it is really the follow up and delivery of the music to the audience that is difficult.
