Topic: WHAT IS MUSIC?
By definition: (Thorndyke and Barnhart Dictonary)
"The art of putting sounds together in arrangements-a pleasant sound-written or printed signs for music-recorded arrangements"also to "face the music" eg. meet trouble head on or answer for ones actions as in dance to the music. aside from the early grunting of cave man(which oddly resembles some of today's genres) music has always been with us from chants passed down from one generation to the next or written notes on paper, music has been preserved in one form or another for future generations and until Thomas Edison invented a crude form of recording on a cylinder there were piano rolls or music boxes that played if you wound them up.Music can lift your spirits or make you weep,angry,and like no other form of human expression music stands alone as the most powerful form of communicating ideas to the masses and expressing love and reverence so what are your thoughts on what music is?
