Digital Music : Sounds of the Cosmos

Music - Scale Origins
“Music is the vernacular of the human soul.” Geoffrey Latham. For all of us who are passionate about music, absolutely in sync with the belief music is the lingua franca of all life forms i.e. animal or human, does the sound of soul searing music make you pause and think about the first musical note, a note that gave birth to other notes and scales, music as we know it today? Does anyone brood on whether it was the hitting of two stones or the stamping of feet that first saw the striking of musical notes or was it the clapping of hands that saw early man stomp his feet to the rhythm of beating drums and chanting voices, in the throes of a musically enhanced ecstasy that brought about spiritual healing. But, man is not the only creature that makes music, and birdsong is the most perfect example of music that humans try to re-create. There is recorded evidence of whales singing, while, the Chinese are known not only to keep songbirds, but also, cicadas in cages because of the music they make.

A passion for music has been ignited in the human soul, perhaps, beginning with a rhythmic stomping of feet to the sound of beating drums and chanting at religious ceremonies, rituals that stretch all the way back to the beginning of human consciousness. Whatever, the origin of music / digital music is a wonderful medium that allows us to create and express emotions from love, passion, ecstasy, and wonder. “Music is love in search of a word. “Sidney Lanier.

Music - Of the Spheres
“Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule. Nevertheless one had better know the rules, for they sometimes guide in doubtful cases, though not often.” Samuel Butler. The moaning, sighing, soughing sound of wind, slow drizzle or pelting rain, sweetly gurgling streams, swiftly flowing rivers or ocean waves crashing against cliffs, all constitute music, affirmation that deep within the cosmos there is the sound of music. Music that we can hear if we relax by shutting out extraneous elements, deep in concentrated meditation as the Song of the Universe begins to penetrate our beings. Cosmic music called The Music of the Spheres by the ancient Greeks was the melodious music produced by the planets as they circled through the heavens according to an entranced Pythagoras, Greek philosopher par excellence.

Is the music of nature merely sentiment or simply functional noises or does it also have a voice? An ancient Hebrew psalmist quoted below most certainly believed it did when he wrote the following psalm:

The heavens declare the glory of God;
The skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
Night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
Their words to the ends of the world.

As did other races and cultures! And, we will begin a daily initiation into the origins of music for each racial group as Dr. Julie Trudeau educates about the origins of digital music and initiates her readers into believing that digital music speaks in ways that go beyond words, in the same way that the sights we see with our eyes have a far deeper impact than words.
