Wake up, sing in the shower, exit your flat, whistle a tune, commute, i-Play a favorite ditty, Zumba to beats, 150+ per minute, dine to ballads, promenade to hip-hop, talk over soft jazz, shop to Pop, fall asleep to pink noise. Music and sound everywhere.
Now consider your workplace and its soundtrack, the themes motivating the dancers on your projects, programs, and change initiatives. A lonesome horn, over some bass and swirling brushwork? A blend of finely tuned multi-part harmonies? 12-tone and dissonant or easy to hum? The usual verse-chorus-verse-chorus-fade, or something more?
They’re all playing out there, in your head, in the office next-door, on the floor below, down the boulevard, across the country, after the sun, the different tunes, the backbones laid down by the different drummers.
To each their own. Include your favorites and then play them all. Not one at a time, but all at once. You will potentially need to, dear Maestro, to bring order to what would otherwise be cacophony.
