SCIENTIFIC SENSATION AND THE HARMONY OF THE SPHERES
Music is the Myth of a culture. The model of a world outlook. The classical European
conception of the world was mechanistic, deterministic and very much a thing of the past.
Life is like a developed film or a wound-up clock. No room for chance. Correspondingly,
the social order is centralistic and absolutistic. Music, derived in a hierarchically consonant
manner from a key note, is aesthetical, i.e. it stabilizes a given form by cultural
regeneration/feedback. The musical concept of notes is analogous to a view that perceives
atoms to be indissoluble particles. Composition, established in notes, leaves the structure and
dynamic quality of tone by and large unheeded.
