Such as, we would miss our airplane flights, doctor appointments, and school classes. Everything we do as human beings has some type of structure to it. So that being said structure and organization is an essential element in the arts. Music is very structured in the way you sing certain notes or the way that band is positioned. When you go to a concert or even when you just watched the high school band play, without the structure of music the band members would not be playing all together and on key. No matter how a certain person lives there life there is always some kind of structure in the way they live it.

Music for Motion and Emotion- Wayang Kulit
Shadow plays or Wayang Kulit is a traditional and popular performance in Java, Indonesia. The first time I heard of Wayang Kulit, it seemed very familiar with “Mua Roi, puppetry” in Vietnam since they both use puppets to tell a story.

Concept art is first of all an art of which the material is "concepts," as the material of for ex. music is sound.

The music he wrote has stood the test of time and has been a true testament to his unusual talent.

He “wanted the story of his music to be the story of his life. He did his best to live the same way, struggling…
