The powerful impact of music is what inspires us at Depth Magazine. We’ve felt it ourselves many times over. We go deep in our written content, allowing ourselves to share as authentically as possible about what musicians have created.
We also have a huge amount of respect for the creative process and just how much goes into creating a piece of music. We are disturbed by careless judgement and rejection of albums or pieces of music, simply because it doesn’t fit into a mould or into a preconception of that artist or genre. We value the fact that creativity is an ongoing and ever evolving adventure, and the music reflects exactly and perfectly where the artist is at.
An album is a work of art, not a ticking of genre-relevant boxes.
- the apparent existence of three dimensions in a two dimensional representation
- complexity or profundity of thought
- a point far below the surface
- extensive or detailed study
While music is the result of a person playing an instrument or singing a song, there is far more to music than that, and those among us that live and breathe music know this to be powerfully true.
A song can take us to another space or time by simply hearing a few notes of it.
A song can unfold (and heal) parts of us that we didn’t know existed within us.
A song can inspire within us new ways of thinking or feeling, such as a desire to create.
A song can especially inspire detailed study, which is what we aim to bring to you.
Depth encapsulates very well our relationship with music and also how we respond to it, so Depth Magazine was a very easy name choice.
The People Behind Depth
It’s of the utmost importance that all who contribute to Depth Magazine champion the philosophy of respecting the creative process and doing what we do with heart.
Currently all content of Depth Magazine is created by Kel Burch: A resident of Melbourne, Australia, whom David Bendeth described as ‘not a one woman operation’, but a ‘powerhouse’ and ‘the real deal’. Kel is the head caretaker of the entity that is Depth Magazine, and spends most of her waking hours devouring music, recognising its core expression and turning this back into words which you read as reviews or other articles.
If you have a burning question for us, want us to check out your music, or just want to say hello, drop us a note through the Contact page or connect with us on Facebook or Twitter. For what it’s worth, we only write about music that feels like a ‘YES’ to us, and will never accept payment to sway our opinions.
