Así pues, la RAE atribuye a la música el 'poder' de conmover, bien para alegrarnos o entristecernos. El concepto de música ha ido evolucionando desde su origen en la antigua Grecia, donde era una de las seis bellas artes, junto a la arquitectura, la escultura, la pintura, la literatura y la danza. Es innegable, por tanto, que la música es algo inmaterial, a veces difícil de definir. El origen de la palabra viene del griego y significa 'el arte de las musas', ya que los antiguos helenos consideraban que estaba inspirada por estas diosas. La música puede ser un simple reflejo de un estado de ánimo, pero también puede modificarlo. La Historia está repleta de ejemplos de ambos casos: acordémonos de himnos que mostraban un sentir general —la canción 'Libertad sin ira', del grupo Jarcha, en la Transición española— o melodías que han contribuido a ver las cosas de otra manera, incluso a cambiarlas —Los Beatles, por ejemplo, llegaron a ser percibidos como la encarnación de los ideales progresistas, extendiendo su influencia en las revoluciones sociales y culturales de la década de 1960—. Tampoco podemos olvidar movimientos como el punk, con los Sex Pistols a la cabeza. Sin embargo, parece que desde entonces este poder transformador está diluido. Son tiempos duros los que estamos viviendo, y la música tiene un papel de simple divertimento. Nadie, o muy pocos, componen concienciados de que la música es capaz de ser mucho más. O puede que lo hagan, pero su trabajo no consigue llegar a nuestros oídos, bien por el mercantilismo que impera, bien porque la sociedad aún no es verdaderamente consciente de que las cosas deben cambiar. Confiemos en que la música vuelva a ser un motor de cambio que remueva conciencias. ¡Habrá que tener los oídos bien abiertos!According to the most common definition of the Royal Spanish Academy, music is the art of combining sounds of the human voice or instruments, or both at a time, so as to produce pleasure, stirring up sensitivity either happily or sadly. So, the RAE attributes to music the 'power' of moving either to cheer or to sadden. The concept of music has evolved from its origins in ancient Greece, where it was one of six fine arts, along with architecture, sculpture, painting, literature and dance. Therefore, it is undeniable, that music is something intangible, sometimes difficult to define. The origin of the word comes from greek and means 'the art of the Muses', as the ancient Greeks believed that it was inspired by these goddesses. Music can be a simple reflection of a state of mind, but it can also modify it. History is full with examples of both cases: remember hymns which showed a general feeling —the song 'Libertad sin ira', by Jarcha, a group from the Spanish Transition— or melodies that have helped to see things differently, even to change them —The Beatles, for example, came to be perceived as the incarnation of progressive ideals, extending its influence during the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s—. We can’t forget neither movements like punk, lead by the Sex Pistols. However, it seems that since then, this transformer power is diluted. We are currently living hard times and music plays the role of a simple entertainment. No one, or very few, compose aware that music can be much more. Or maybe they do, but their work can not reach our ears, either because mercantilism is prevailing or either because society is still not truly aware that things must change Let us hope that music will become again an engine of change that will stir minds up. We will have to keep our ears wide open!"
