I am a graphical person and this kind of music is my primary source of inspiration and also my peace of mind.

I cannot live without this music...

i agree Kerem. i'm studying art and i never draw without some moya or clannad on in the background, it just takes you to the right place from which you can draw or write or do anyhting. i love it.

My answer is no. You don't have to be musical to like Moya's music. I'm not musical myself but more of an artsy type and like Moya's music. Only that I can't have a day without music.Sometimes, I even hear music in my head!

Being a musician I don't think anyone has to be musical to enjoy any form of music whether the genre is New Age, Rock or opera. Actually my aunt is the most unmusical person in the world and she always goes and sees the Boston Symphony Orchestra or Operas near her and to many it seems only musical people would enjoy classical. We are all musical in our own ways too.
I love to put on Enya or Maire or something classical when I write, but then when I read it, it doesn't make much sense. ;)

Hi everyone ! When I am reading - and, above all, writing- I do not listen any kind of music, whether it's classical, Moya's, Enya's or Loreena McKennitt's, for I am quite unable to do two things at the same time ! Why ? I note that true, inspired music involves me too much to be able of any kind of other activity requiring concentration or inspiration... Nevertheless, I agree with graphical people. While drawing or painting, as I already experimented myself, a musical background may bring some inner peace and even, inspiration, like an environment with birds' or children's songs.

Interesting question.. I only discovered it just now. :D
I don't think you have to be musical to appreciate Moya's music, or the music of Clannad. But what would you call musical? If you play an instrument yourself or if you can analyse music when listening to it? Or both? I'd say playing an instrument doesn't mean you're musical. I've met a couple of people who play an instrument but are not musical.
Or if you broaden the definition, being musical could just mean you like to hear music, and music does 'something' with you. This way nearly everybody is musical. How musical do you have to be to appreciate Moya's music? :mrgreen:

Interesting comments...

I agree with your thoughts regarding musicians not being musical. I think a definition of a musical person is...

"someone who can appreciate any form of music regardless of their own personal preferences"

What I mean by 'appreciate' is that they can look beyond the noise and see the craft behind it regardless if it is like a mudflap hitting a wheel type of noise to a classical creation. Appreciation for the person behind it and what they had to go through to make it and best of all get me to listen to it.

I am not self righteous in this area as I am guilty of throwing stuff in the 'forget about it bin' before I give it a second thought so don't get me wrong here. I aint no saint :roll:

So to answer the :?: to REALLY get into Moya's music I think you have to be 'musical' (as in my definition of it)

Was that too deep?

That's an interesting view Daragh, I think you've captured part of what could be a definition of musicality :)

You don't have to be musical to like Moya's music, i guess......

I'm a bit educated in classical singing so I listen mabey a bit different to her than others.......and I can quarantee you that she sounds a thousand times better than all those so called "trained" voices I hear , because it's natural....without frills and tricks.....

I play instruments, but I don't think it's needful to be musical if listen to moya.. Maybe it makes you musical

I also think you don't have to me musically talented to enjoy Moya's music. In my opinion, I think it depends on their personality and their taste in music. The majority of my friends like it a bit, but then get mad when I talk about, because i annoy them with it :mrgreen:

I DO know that all my Moya Forum friends love her music :mrgreen:

I voted no, you don't have to be an expert about music, when you are liking any kind of music. It's the feeling you get after listening that counts if you like music or not. That's how I think of it :P

This is the best answer i have ever heard!! You are so right Keiko, music is all about feelings. Thats why i always listen to music that feels good to me.
