    There is a wide selection of free music on modern and suitable equipment.

    Dancing is weird too, somehow hearing certain sounds makes your body move in synchronization in all kinds of different ways.

    I saw a link a long time ago about dancing being linked to mating rituals. Assuming that is true, I would also assume that you need music to dance. Assuming all those things are true, maybe music does have an evolutionary angle.

    Wish I could find that link.

  • Man - that whistling language video on page 1 was amazing. I had no idea such a language existed.

    Nicola Tesla once said that to unlock the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy and vibration

    Vibration giving birth to harmonics; harmonics evolving into music

    Music tuning you in, to the cosmic harmonicity

    Astral funk

    Vibrating with the universal rhythm

    Every single particle of your earthly imagination reverberating

    Time out of mind

    As you move closer to the light

    Your soul unfolds like a flower

    And you dissolve into vibrational reverie

  • People are always driven to ask questions and become obsessed with finding answers, but sometimes I just wonder if it really matters that we don’t have an answer.

    Considering the variation in what individuals love or hate in music I don’t know that we even know what the question is, let alone the answer.

    I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve heard people tell me that something isn’t really music, so we obviously don’t even have a standard definition of what constitutes ’music’.

    I couldn’t even find the words to really describe why I like music, let alone find a universal statement of why anyone would like music.

    I feel on the lowest level it is because everything in this universe is some form of a vibration with frequency. We are only evolved to perceive them at certain level and all these things are tied together with a universal rule - maths / patterns.

    I see interesting similarity with sounds and colors -

    7 colors in the VIBGYOR spectrum vs 7 full notes in a scale.

    12 colors (Primary+ secondary + tertiary) vs 12 notes in a scale when you add half notes as well.

    You can create a secondary color by mixing two primary colors. Interval is 3

    Interestingly diad chords are formed when you mix two notes separated by Interval 3.

    I think similarly you can extend this to even triad chords vs tertiary colors.

    I also feel primary colors (Red, Yellow, Blue) are strong colors or something that eyes can easily catch on to
    vs
    Resolution notes - I feel (to my ear) C, E and A always resolves into a base which is strong and from which we can easily pivot

    But it is strange that while we can perceive different harmonics of the same notes, am not sure if we can see harmonics of color spectrum (if at all there is such a thing :-) ) - a hint that our ears are more evolved than our eyes, may be since life began underwater.

    Not sure about your points on 7 and 12 - light is a continuous spectrum, as is the frequency of sound. When Newton first split white light into a spectrum, he could only see 6 colours but added a seventh (Indigo) due to seven being perceived as a magic number. And while western music is based on 7 note scales from a 12 note palette, other cultures have different ways of dividing it up. So these are very much humans imposing their own perceptions on things, rather than there being anything fundamental in them.

  • “Why do human beings like listening to music?”

    Because they tire of listening to humans.

  • To release chemicals in our brains.

    I agree with this. I'm not obsessed with finding an answer. I just think it seems there is none that makes sense tome. It is something I wondered about from a young age though. My Father never listened to music, or even talked about it. It was quite literally nothing to him. My Mother loved music, had a good collection of music and had artists she adored. I became addicted to music in a way that really shaped who I am and what preoccupies my mind most of the time. Music is still such a strange thing to me and almost complete seems to evade any level of understanding I am capable of.
