Why could scientists use music to communicate with even aliens in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”? Because music is that universal. It is a close encounter among people, even if it’s a listener 1,000 miles away from the artist, the human connection made across the distance through the power of music. “Music,” says Gumucio, “is the language of the universe. It connects with everyone and makes me feel understood, complete, comforted. It is, in the best cases, a spiritual exchange.”
Music also has a special place in the universe as a uniquely human expression. It’s fire and passion and human emotion all wrapped into a sublime mode of communication. “Music is the platform for all things that makes us uniquely human beings. It is musical poetry addressing the simplest and most complex emotions of life.” In the hands of a master, it is a razor sharp manifestation of human energy that pierces right to the mind and heart. Gumucio is such a master.
