The Love Story behind Music Therapy
Richard Melville Hall, a.k.a Moby, is an American DJ, singer, songwriter, musician, photographer and animal rights activist. He is well known for his electronic music, veganism, and support of animal rights. He is well known for his hits, “Go,” “Natural Blues,” and “Porcelain.” He released his seventeenth studio album, All Visible Objects, in 2020.
In this interview, taken at the back stage of Shambhala Music Festival right before his performance, Moby discusses loss and various methods of warding off the pains of loss. By exploring Music Therapy, he says you can maintain a healthy physical and emotional state. By keeping yourself strong, when a loss occurs you will recover faster.
For instance, Moby refers to heartache like an injury. When your body is strong, you’ll recover from a twisted ankle faster than you would otherwise. So, if you work to strengthen your emotional well being, traumas have less impact.
“My father died when I was two, and family and friends have regularly died throughout most of my life. But the thing that surprised me most as time has passed is that we’re surprised that people die. We’re surprised that things end because everything ends.” — Moby
