The question has come up many times here as to what is music.
Isn't that questioned answered by what you compose?
Isn't what you write a reflection of what you believe music is
and/or should be. Or are you merely imitating the efforts and
precedents established by others. This is not to suggest that
imitation and following an established form is a bad thing.
Compared to the number of composers, revolutionary innovators
are few and far between from an historical perspective.
Regardless, there are certain elements of sound and sounds that
seem to separate music from 'noise', and acceptance can be
both individual and regional.
Is there any one common characteristic, across the globe, that
qualifies and separates music from noise?
