"Three" is a powerful number. Mythology, religion, mysticism,
numerology - all atribute special meaning to this particular digit
and we'd like to explore this further.
Each month the three Music Ecology members will chose a topic to
share three of their thoughts or observations on. We'd love to
hear what you have to say on it too.

This month we'd like to talk about the reasons that make the three
of us want to work in the music industry - the industry where the
