Music Masters by Hejin57

Music forever. 

Music gives us life, and we give life back to music. In a world very much like ours, there are those who listen to music, and then there are those who truly listen to music. Since the dawn of the Classical period, these people have called themselves Music Masters; those who gain fantastical powers from the sound of music. Centuries later, and one disco-loving Michael Kay would discover himself to be one of those very same Music Masters. But how long will his once peaceful sanctity of sound last? Little does Michael know that there are allies, enemies, and Zero Beat abound, as he begins the auditory quest to discover what it truly means to be a Music Master.

Note: Music Masters contains some harsh language.

Unique and Fun

By samberk, author of Stasis

Dec 23, 2018: The foundation of Music Masters isn’t a very unique one: a young hero discovers that they have the ability to wield special powers, and goes off to the world to develop them, making friends and enemies while on their journey. Though the concept itself is rather conventional, I think that the small details and ideas added to the work do set this story apart from the rest, in a way.
