The History of Music
Music is one of the oldest forms of entertainment that has become a multi-billion dollar industry including production, publishing, distribution, live concerts and streaming. Many people will remember artists such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey and even their grandfathers who played or sang a tune at the local pub.
The Platonic-Aristotelian teaching that music mirrors the movements of heavenly bodies and reflects moral order gave a profound significance to Gregorian chant in medieval Christianity. A dissenting 3rd-century voice was that of Sextus Empiricus, who insisted that music is an art of tones and rhythms without meaning and has no influence on any other phenomenon, human or natural.
A protean art, music lends itself to alliances with words (folk song, art song, opera, “background” music) and with physical movement (dance). Throughout history it has been credited with the ability to reflect and influence human emotions, which popular culture exploits in a bewildering profusion of styles, ranging from snappy pop to pulsating EDM. It is also a highly effective therapeutic tool, as exemplified by the use of sound for memory enhancement and psychological healing.
Musical theory has been influenced by a number of investigators who could be termed “symbolists.” Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) and Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) both believed that the experience of music is unlike any other of the arts, being closer to the inner dynamism of process than the objects of the empirical world. They interpreted this feeling of awe and rapture as a form of symbolism, and saw the musical articulation of the Will as its purest and most powerful expression.
