The Beauty of Instrumental Music 

Music as a whole comprises different elements. In order for a song to turn out a certain way, many factors come into play. Right from the composition, to the lyrics, to the singers, everything needs to align, only then, a song becomes capable of touching the hearts and souls of the audience. But, music is not just about lyrics, it is about the melody, the tunes, and the instruments. And luckily enough, Bollywood is blessed with legendary instrumental artists who have created magic through their art. The thing about instrumental music is that it tends to have a soothing effect on you. And unlike lyrics, instruments do not require you to focus on the song entirely to understand the ideation, instruments speak to your soul wordlessly.  

Songs usually convey stories. Stories that depict heartbreak, love, anger, oppression, envy, hatred or triumph. Lyrics tell the stories that the writers want to convey, in short as audiences we do not have the power to interpret the song to our liking. For example, a song with lyrics about a break-up can not be interpreted as a song about world problems or anything else for that matter. Yes, a break-up song will be grasped differently by different people but the core ideation of the song and the emotions that it will evoke, that is anger or sadness would remain the same. 

Songs that comprise a series of vocabulary are pretty close-ended. They leave no space for the audience to interpret or give their own relatable meaning to that song. It is almost like a one-sided conversation. Instrumental music, on the other hand, has no words and thus does not restrict the listener to grasp only one meaning to the song. So you and your friend could be listening to some instrumental music, and you would find it to be extremely soothing and would make you think about your first love. Your friend on the other hand might think that the song is about a happy moment and might think about the first time they moved into their new home. 


Different Instruments usually depict different emotions and feelings, let’s have a look at what different instruments represent:

  • The piano has to be one of the most loved and well-known instruments. And additionally, its been around for centuries. Bartomomeo Cristofori invented this beautiful instrument around the year 1709. Ever since the piano has been considered to be a symbol of unity and social status amongst noble families. A piano usually is considered to represent mellowness and contentment. Along with deep romance. 
  • French horns also represent nobility. But apart from that, it is also a symbol of accomplishment, loneliness, and solitude. 
  • The trumpet, trombone, and other brass instruments on the other hand depict excitement and energy. 
  • String instruments such as the violin, usually depict softness and subtlety but apart from that it also represents fragility, sadness, tranquillity, joyfulness and sometimes even coldness. 
  • A guitar, on the other hand, signifies a mix of emotions, depending on its subcategory. A distorted guitar might represent anguish, power, aggression and strength. An electric guitar on the other hand symbolises anguish or solitude. While an acoustic guitar usually depicts softer emotions and feelings like humility and contentment. 
  • A pipe organ represents power, fury, rage, and overwhelming joy.
  • A square-wave synth means complexity, chaos, speed, and sophistication. 
  • A marimba represents happy music and, finally, a solo cello equals sadness
