***The state of music today lends itself to what we might call an evolutionary leap, due to the accumulative and increasingly competitive pressures striving for limited resources.

***Music can and will break from what we currently use to define it with. The stage is set for a much wider interpretation of what music is and what its capabilities are. Set free from its confining position of providing entertainment, music explodes with potential.

***Sound is infinite in its range, therefore the range of vibratory phenomena is also infinite. When the redefined musician knows, beyond a shadow of any doubt, the truth of this statement, we will have crossed over the next frontier. The truth is that sound is the fundamental condition of the universe.

***Theoretical physicists get to talk about strings, and make analogies to music, without being master musicians. All matter is made up of vibrations. This vibration, whatever its rate or frequency, is no different, fundamentally, from a musical note or tone. The musician holds the key to the universe.

*** Science relies on precise mathematics to produce vibratory phenomena that is not seen as music, per se. Never trust anyone who claims that music is mathematics. I think we’ve all heard that before, time and time again, that music is mathematics, to the point where it becomes taken for granted, that music is mathematics. It’s not true. Music is not mathematics. Music can be approximated using mathematics, but will always fall short of the truth.

***There is a battle being waged that has nothing to do with guns and bombs. The centerpiece concept in this battle is the notion that all things can be described mathematically, whether that be the workings of the universe or the creation of music. So whether we speak in terms of music or mathematics my question is the same. What is between 1 and 2?

***What is between the notes B and C?
