Music Matters (November 16th, 2012)
NPR featured a video from the “Imagine Science Film Festival” on how someone with autism experiences sounds. This enlightening video shows how impactful sounds can be on a person’s life and is a great reminder for us to seek out times of quiet with God removing all sonic overload.
Guest contributor Kiel Hauck at Christ and Pop Culture wrote about Underoath’s influence on post-hardcore bands as well as the effect of their lyricism on his own journey with Christ. He states:
As a music listener, Underoath challenged me to think harder about composition and what actually makes a song or an album complete or meaningful. As a Christian, they confronted my fears and encouraged me to face my doubts with joy and acceptance rather than defeat and despair. As a human, they provided peace in the midst of pain and understanding in the midst of confusion.
