When contemplating the issue of law, I like to compare any legal court to a musical orchestra. There are many similarities to a successful court and a successful orchestra. Yes, music and law might be two different matters, but their appeals and measures are one in the same. Music will tend to remind us of our past, our memories. We feel emotions to the patterns of the music, we understand that there is some meaning to the artist's work. This is the psychological appeal in which we, the audience, come into contact with. We know that many classical artists such as Chopin, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, and Bach composed works of art that still make a lasting impression today. However, even today's best contemporary classical musicians can fail at trying to resurrect those masterpieces. Our minds can determine the separation of a work of art and something less feasible.
