Trance

I've always been a fan of trance. It's the kind of music that really takes the idea of "beauty in simplicity" and makes it work. Good trance mixes separate your mind from your body and engulf you in emotions. The sound waves pulse rhythmically and expectedly, usually with a constant heavy kick drum and bass. And yet, in the simplicity of these waveforms lies the capability to enthrall. I've picked up my old trance mixes and started listening to them again.

Unfortunately, I've underestimated the genre. That's not to say that I should change its position on the flowchart. It's just...the task of recreating the human ability to capture emotions. Wow. Wish me luck.
