THEME OF THE WEEK: The Realism of Illusion

If illusions stem from our imagination, what absurdities can exist within our actual realities? Are they the objective truths we struggle with, or are they the subjective ? We may not have the answer, but music provides us with a starting point to understand and experience the illusions and realities of life.
