Muse as a muse / by Paul Granese


I went to see Muse in concert the other night and the experience reminded me of why I connect so well with this band. Muse is a band of artists who have eclectic style, range and dynamics. And I consider their music art because it has that blend of dynamics, range, composition and style - like a great piece of art, or a photograph. Seeing them perform flawlessly was a pleasure in itself but to experience the show of light and color and mood and shadows was brilliant. This is a trio of artists who express themselves musically, lyrically and visually, and all at the same time. It was not only a great experience but it was also inspirational to me as an artist.
