The Invisible Power of Music

There is this sacred conversation that happens between the soul and the music being played.

Music heard so deeply, that it is not heard at all, but you become the music.

You cannot touch it, yet with precision you converse with its beat.

And when it leaves you, it changes you.

It always changes you. -tM

A young Depeche Mode up top, still relevant (well to my generation) and David Gahan, after 37 years of doing the same moves, still has one of the most magnetic and sexy presences on stage (I think it is magnified by his deep voice, choice of attire, and need to move his body) I have had the pleasure of enjoying live many times. -tM

That voice. He sings from his gut. This is soul.

When Baroque meets Contemporary

Bach was my favourite composer to play on the piano, complicated pieces, and sounds translated onto the piano. The whole point was to make Bach sound effortless, simple. This young man does what I tried to do with my hands, he simplifies Bach through dance and gives it a secondary life through his own movement.

Simply beautiful. -tM

You recently confirmed a rumor that Prince proposed to you onstage.
Yes, during the Sign o' the Times Tour. I was playing drums and it was during "Purple Rain." That song always made me cry. We were so into it. The way he played – my God. My eyes were closed a lot during that song. It was just so emotional. Musically, you know when you get to that place where you're just one? We hit that place. And when I opened my eyes, I could see his eyes were opening as well. He turned and looked at me during his solo and that's when he asked me to marry him and I said yes. We were still playing the song.

Did the audience know? Was it a big moment?
Oh no, it was just him and I. We didn't even see anybody else as far as I'm concerned. It was just him and I.
