Sacred Texts Esoteric Index Previous Next p. 81 HARMONY is a state recognized by great philosophers as the immediate prerequisite of beauty. A compound is termed beautiful only when its parts are in harmonious combination. The world is called beautiful and its Creator is designated the Good because good perforce must act in conformity with its own nature; and good acting according to its own nature is harmony, because the good which it accomplishes is harmonious with the good which it is. Beauty, therefore, is harmony manifesting its own intrinsic nature in the world of form.
May 2005 The astronomer Galileo Galilei observed in 1623 that the entire universe "is written in the language of mathematics", and indeed it is remarkable the extent to which science and society are governed by mathematical ideas. It is perhaps even more surprising that music, with all its passion and emotion, is also based upon mathematical relationships. Such musical notions as octaves, chords, scales, and keys can all be demystified and understood logically using simple mathematics. Pitch: Wave frequencies
Diminished chords, like major and minor chords, occur naturally in every key , and each key has only one diminished chord. Intervals in a Diminished Chord A diminished chord is built similarly to a minor chord , except for its fifth.
If all art aspires to the condition of music, all the sciences aspire to the condition of mathematics. - George Santanaya Music is the pleasure of the human soul experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting. - Gottfried Leibniz Mathematics and music have a strange connection.
Symmetry is a well-known phenomenon, both in nature, whose existence does not depend on persons, and in culture, the person- and people-made part of reality. It is found in the physical world of atoms and molecules, in the geometrical world of ellipses and spheres and in the biological world of plants and animals, including human bodies (at least as far as their outward appearance is concerned).
Music by Chance? Die Musikalisches Wurfelspiel Mozart wrote a sixteen measure minuet with eleven different possibilities to choose from for each measure. The performer chooses one of the eleven possibilities for each measure by rolling two dice.
and the Free Music Movement that arose in part from this philosophy . What is the Free Music Philosophy (FMP) ? It is an anarchistic grass-roots, but high-tech, system of spreading music: the idea that creating, copying, and distributing music must be as unrestricted as breathing air, plucking a blade of grass, or basking in the rays of the sun.
Music diversity will grow. The major labels' business model requires them to have a steady stream of consistent products. The very nature of their operation produces homogenized music designed for specific radio formats and scientifically honed to hit-making models. Artists are signed and promoted based on the opinions of individual A&R executives, not the popularity of the music. When the major labels crumble, the diversity of mainstream music will blossom. It will be a revolution in pop culture.
The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Music uses the laws of physics and mathematics to bring out an emotional response in the listener.
Respect this man. Mr. Ronald Jenkees is not your typical beat-maker. He’s even got a mild case of the crazies. Regardless of his weird mannerisms, there is no doubt that this dude has an unbelievable ear for the keyboard (think Polow da Don meets Capcom).
The frequencies 440Hz and 880Hz both correspond to the musical note A, but one octave apart. The next higher A in the musical scale would have the frequency 1760Hz, twice 880Hz. In the western musical scale, there are 12 notes in every octave. These notes are evenly distributed (geometrically), so the next note above A, which is B flat, has frequency 440 × β where β is the twelfth root of two, or approximately 1.0595. The next note above B flat, which is B, has frequency 440 × β 2 . Left is a table of the complete musical scale between middle A and A-880.
Pogo is Australian. Pogo is a DJ. Pogo is the coolest DJ ever. I mean the guy takes random sound clips and chords from movies and throws them together to somehow make astonishingly catchy songs with equally impressive videos. One of these songs would legitimately take me years to make, but Pogo just keeps pumping them out. Ultra genius.
