You may be referring to the intervals and tonal relationships of the western diatonic scale. But there's also harmony as in all of us gettin' along. All men are brothers, as Goethe would say.
Perhaps those two sets of principles are related? I look forward to your harmonious posts.
Pour a glass of wine, kick off your shoes and get comfortable then. : )
Slippin' and Slidin'.
Maybe you get the same broadcast on your radio station. I know some folks around here could use some of that love potion. ;-)
"Life without music is a mistake" (Nietzsche)
. . . the steam coming out of the ears of some folks here who see misogyny under every rock or around every street corner. Or who claim that they'll be ignoring future "misogynist" posts and who yet never seem to be able to restrain themselves from commenting on them.
Of who can be the Stockhausen or Xenakis of this board? I thought you were in the harmony camp! Anyone who posts +1 nt to one of my typically thoughtful yet entertaining comments, a Richard Wagner comment no less (exceedingly rare for me) is obviously a person of refined taste discernment.
And as I mentioned to you long ago, moderator-master Chris, if you keep "pushing peoples' buttons", as you put it, those people are going to retaliate from time to time. I say you should just absorb that retaliation silently and move on, or at least not respond in kind.
BTW, thanks for your academician post. The writers you cite are not people I have any interest in reading up on. If they are dogmatic bozos, so be it. I had an early music specialist professor like that. I guess some academicians and HIP musicians feel they need to take a very rigid hard line to justify their academic existence, but not the best of them, imho.
hmmmm ---- very Severius! -ish

Yes, a little "L'elisir d'amore", ahem, goes a long way as they say. ; )
Perhaps it's the harmony of all parts working together so that no one part draws unjust attention to itself. IOW, Beauty.
I think Aristotle said something about that, or maybe it was Groucho.
I quit the study of Philosophy when it occurred to me that Beauty was BOTH subjective and objective; I Kant reconcile all the fuss over whether it's one or the other.
I listen therefore I am.
"Beauty was BOTH subjective and objective"
Amazing. So true.
Now that you've said it, is seems so obvious - one of those "why didn't I think of it before" moments - and yet --- it contemplating beauty all of my life [chief thru music, but in other aspects of existence also], I've never hit on that solution.
