Music must be more than a collection of distinct sounds, it must have context, a theme, a north star to guide the artist and the listener. Music has an ability to enhance the senses, heighten their innate ability to take in information, absorb what is around it, to perceive more, to provide a lens through which we perceive the world around us differently.
With Further Vision v1.8, Locked Groove created a mix that explored Perception, how he views music as the causal actor in how we can perceive the world around us. He says, “your perception of the world can change drastically”, from walking down the street listening to Mozart to listening to punk rock. “With this mix I tried to go through different styles quickly and change how you can perceive the world.”
You can actually hear Locked Groove’s distinct ability to alter, mirror, and effect how you perceive what is around you. “Of course all of this is subjective and that’s the core of music and also the beauty of it. Perception of music changes and is one of the most personal things there is.”
