    I would really love a Sure Beta 58 mic. We use them in our church band, and they are by far the best vocal mic I’ve ever used. Thanks for making such great products, and giving me the opportunity to win one.

  • Dan Monaghan says:

    Sound has always intrigued me. Listening carefully to the textures of music or the space around me is arresting process. Some nice new headphones might make it even more fun!

    Why am I passionate about music?

    Because it’s the one thing in the world that all humans, even those isolated from technology, utilize an create. With lyrics or without, we communicate through it.

    Its something that reguardless of any physical or mental impairment, any human can enjoy. I have seen a man with out hands play guitar. Someone unable to talk can still speak through an instrument. A deaf man feels the vibrations of sound and a deaf man can still compose (Mozart). An autistic individual can be improved and find endless happiness in music. A blind man can see through music. What better thing in the world is there!?

    We have given chords names, we identify what an A minor is or an E… And through each note, we expirance emotion. A musician collaborates these notes together in a way that fits what they think in their minds, what they feel in their hearts; in ways that one sometimes cannot achieve with plain words and they manage to basically hand an intangible emotion from their heart into the heart of another, something technology has not yet achived.

    Music can make a crowd of people move. It can make a crowd stop dead in their tracks. it can heal, and it can break. It can be intoxicating. It can change you outlook for better… Or for worse, and that in itself is power unrivaled. It has such strong ties and capabilities, that some countries have been known to try and ban it from their populations, knowing it could be an undoing of control. Some people even have the ability to make it control others. The Catholic Church once banned the use of minor chords in holy music, because of the melancholy feel they possessed! Music is a weapon that can be wielded in many ways. From woodwinds to percussion to synths to strings… It’s the very thing that we cannot do without. It was born inside us and is all around us.

    Music was here before we were here, as old as time and stands to last just as long… We merely discovered it. I believe it will still echo in the void, long after we are gone.

    Why am I passionate about music? The better question would is, how could I not be??

    I have always known that frequency was the birth of life and all the universe. Matter is merely energy condense to different vibrations. This is why since a ver young age I have been in love with music I have existed as it is the heart beat of my mother, the laughter of my father and the babble of my daughter. Sound is the key to unlocking the universe and all it’s complexities. It has already been unlocking the human mind and touching the emotions of animal, plant and man for as long as we have been. All animals sing and have songs to express various emotions and desires, just as humans do. Plants and the wind create such a beautiful sound when out exploring the forest. The whales all over the world sing songs that can be heard up to 500 miles. So to me, sound and music is life’s commonality, it’s is the one thing all life forms have in common. FEELING, DYNAMICS, MELODY AND OF COURSE, REST TO REFLECT ON THE BEAUTIFUL NATURE OF FREQUENCY. I would much rather be blind than deaf but even if I were deaf……I would always be able to feel the beat, the bass, the rhythm. THANK YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL QUESTION AND I CAN’T wait to read the responses. PEACE. Nicholas Hilton, HUMANIMAL, FATHER, MUSICIAN, USAF
