Musical Expression

Silas Deane
March 25, 2020

Silas Deane is the artist who created the theme music for BH WELL videos and other resources on our website. He is a musician and a producer. In this video, Silas discusses the key role that emotions play in music creation. Silas says he is not outwardly emotional but his emotions come through in his music. Music resonates with us on a deeper level than we even know how to communicate. In this video, he plays an impromptu tune that expresses his calm and excitement at the time of filming.
