“Music, Media and its Impact on Culture and Society”
A presentation by Steve Robertson
Music is the transcendental medicine that establishes communion with the Divine and opens pathways towards the self-realization of the soul. Music has the power to create individual and collective awakenings. It has the power to create movements and call people into action. Music represents the single most important driver in brand recognition because of how profoundly it defines the collective emotional range of a given demographic.
Music speaks the pure language of the heart with the power to transform thoughts, inspire new visions and provoke conviction within action. Music may provide the key to unlocking and empowering each person’s ability to discover their unique life purpose and to collectively connect towards making our world a more harmonious place. The great Sufi Master, Hazart Khan of the 14th Century said of music, “People say that the soul on hearing the song of creation entered the body but, in reality, the soul itself was the song.”
Steve Robertson offers listeners a unique insight into the world of music and its influence. Spanning the subject matter from historic, religious, philosophical, psychology, physics, brand marketing, its ultimate influence and impact on culture and society, Robertson creates the opportunity to understand music from a unique perspective. This will empower a new appreciation and approach for harnessing the healing power of music in media and society.
