It’s the sound that you organize in your mind. It’s a note fixed to a frequency and played in a series of sound pitches and time intervals arranged to create melody or mood. If you ask, you will find some people that visualize music as touch or color, others as symbols on a page, and yet others that swear their emotion or a higher power influenced them. There are so many technical and sensual aspects to music that it is vast and impossible to completely understand.
One thing is certain – music is not simply a set of rules and regulations. It is evolving timbres, and with the advent of better synthesizers, these timbres and textures go beyond musical theory as we know it. In fact, Mozart could easily be a rock star or freestyle turntable spinning DJ, or a one man band creating music and changing it on the fly, in the world of synthesizers we would call that resampling or as a guitar player using a device that records and replays his work while they interact and build sonic structures we might call them loopists. Were Mozart alive today, adapting the greatest melodies of Bach while improvising and saving it to a sampler which repeats the sound as he manipulates what has been played we’d quite likely call him a techno player. And of course, there are those who wonder if you can explain music at all.
We will give it our best shot trying to.
