Let's ignore the archetype himself for a moment. Pretend this isn't being taken by a DJ -- why does the Perk require you to play music? How does this music let you better manipulate reality?
Well, I can only guess as to the author's intent, but I'd say that you need to play music for the same reason that a D&D Bard needs to play music. That's just how bards work. I wouldn't bat an eye if an Ayslish bard-type character took this, or a cyberpunk headbanger. Music + inspiration + being possibility rated has power.
In fact, I think it'd be super-fun for some groups of players out-of-game. If, when a fight started, one character was busting out with the original "Eye of the Tiger", or Pat Benatar's "Invincible", or "Bad to the Bone", or "We Need a Hero". It could be an amusing little party game that everyone gets a chuckle out of, especially if it's thematically appropriate to the scene. Fighting mummies in a dusty Nile crypt? "Another One Bites the Dust!"
Seems fun to me, anyway.
