The Band: An Instrument for Control
By Deon S. King
IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE MUSIC IS MAJESTIC. A WORLD HIGHLY INFLUENCED BY LYRICS. IN THIS WORLD, SOCIAL STRUCTURE, CULTURE, ETHICS, AND MORALS WERE DICTATED BY THE BEAT OF A DRUM, BY CHORDS ON THE PIANO, THE ROARING OF A GUITAR RIFT, THE THUMP OF THE BASS, THE ORGANIC MELODY OF THE ORGAN, AND THE SEDUCTION OF A SMOOTH SOUNDING SAXOPHONE. FROM INCEPTION (MANY OF US WERE CONCEIVED VIA THE HYPNOTIC EFFECT OF MUSIC) WE LOVE MUSIC, ITS RHYTHMIC MOTION CAUSES US TO SWAY BACK AND FORTH, AND DANCE A TWO-STEP THROUGH LIFE. THEN AFTER LIFE'S DANCE WE ARE USHERED INTO THE AFTER-WORLD ACCOMPANIED BY MUSIC AND LYRICS.
INSIDE THE WORLD OF “THE BAND: AN INSTRUMENT FOR CONTROL,” THE READERS ARE INTRODUCED TO A PARALLEL UNIVERSE. THE UNIVERSE IS AN ONTOLOGICAL CONSCIOUSNESS, WHERE A DOUBLE-ENTENDRE LACED STORY IS CENTERED AROUND MUSIC, LYRICS, AND CHURCH HISTORY. THE READERS ARE INVITED TO EMBRACE THE SURFACE DIALOGUE OR ENGAGE IN THE THEOLOGICAL DEBATE (HIDDEN WITHIN) PERTAINING TO THE FORMATION OF THE CHURCH DURING THE REIGN OF CONSTANTINE AND THE EFFECTS OF AN EMPIRE CONTROLLED CHURCH. CONTINGENT UPON YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH MUSIC OR YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF CHURCH HISTORY; THE LYRICS WITHIN CAN BE INSIGHTFUL, INFORMATIVE, OR INSPIRATIONAL.
