Weekend Trivia -- Sunday
Good Sunday Morning, Cottagers!! It is cool and clear here, but should warm up a bit later!! Gorgeous fall day.
Well, we have talked about music in the past, but mostly about songs and bands and musicians. Shall we go back to the basics? I actually did take piano lessons as a child - made it to Grade 8 before boys and rock n'roll took hold!! lol. Also, Grade 8 is where you begin to learn 'Theory', which gets into the nuts and bolts of music, e.i. to a 13-year-old girl, b-o-r-i-n-g!!!! Make no mistake, the world did not lose a musical genius when I walked away from the piano, and began playing the radio!
So, today we are looking for a natural phenomenon that has been referred to as the "basic miracle of music", the use of which is "common in most musical systems". Hmmmm....it is a part of most "advanced musical cultures", but is far from universal in "primitive" and early music.
Any guesses? Is this easy? I knew what this was, but didn't understand how basic a premise it was...now I find it kind of sexy. Maybe I should go back and take Theory!!
Back later with clues~~Nancy.
