I could describe the Franck violin sonata in three words: sensuous, kinetic and [utterly] profound.

But then my classical station is currently playing a performance of it with... horrors... a flute! I take it all back. Where the violin has a piercing intensity, the flute is merely a joyous music-box festivity.

I agree with you. If you can count "an" as a word, you can count "a" as a word, because they are almost the same thing: one just goes before vowels and one goes before consonants. And I feel everyone here would say "an" is a word, so I will say that I believe "a" is a word.

A Powerful Weapon

The Hebrew word for melody is Nigun, the Hebrew word for protection is ‘Gonen’, in the Hebrew Language these two words are spelled by the same 3 letters of Nun (pronounced Noon) ,Gimel, and Nun again. King David used his music for protection, he is known as the Sweet Singer of Israel. When Joshua came to the city of Jericho, he was able to conquer it after the Israelites circled the city 7 times and then Called with their Ram’s Horns. After the Call of Horns ceased, the walls of Jericho fell.

Music therefore has an immense power, and can be used for protection and as a weapon to win battles.

It could also be used to generate togetherness and peace and love between all people, it has a strong unifying force, that brings harmony to the world.

Music is...

Divine-Inspiration for Mass-Murder?

The walls of the city collapsed, and the Israelites were able to charge straight into the city. The city was completely destroyed, and every man, woman, and child in it was killed. Only Rahab and her family were spared, because she had hidden the two spies sent by Joshua.

Charming story.
Now that Ram's Horns are no longer fashionable it is so difficult to choose appropriate music to accompany a good genocide.

Incidentally, music as a tool in warfare is not unique to the Jewish bible. In many cultures and eras, from Ancient Rome to 21st century America, music was used by an advancing army to terrify their enemy. In the 20th century, the Nazis did it, and the Russians did it. Shostakovich even wrote a symphony to evoke such musical warfare. In the last few years, stories came out about the US Military using music as a method of torture/interrogation.

Music is powerful!

Laughing out loud.

Incidentally, music as a tool in warfare is not unique to the Jewish bible. In many cultures and eras, from Ancient Rome to 21st century America, music was used by an advancing army to terrify their enemy. In the 20th century, the Nazis did it, and the Russians did it. Shostakovich even wrote a symphony to evoke such musical warfare. In the last few years, stories came out about the US Military using music as a method of torture/interrogation.

Music is powerful!


I new there was a reason Shostakovich grates on my nerves wink

The Nazis used Wagner for that purpose. They also used Jewish folk songs. They forced Jewish prisoners in the concentration camps to sing particularly popular folk songs while laboring to death. Of course, the Nazis claimed that it was to boost morale, but the opposite was really their intention. The Jews knew this, and they changed the lyrics of some of their songs to reflect it. For example, in one song, "Yidl with your fiddle, Moyshe with your bass, play me a little song, in the middle of the street" became "Yidl with your fidde, Moyshe with your bass, play me a little song; they're taking us to the gas" (the Yiddish word for "street" is almost identical to the word for "gas"). In another song, "Under the little green trees, little Shlomos and Moshes are playing" was changed to "Under the little Polish trees, no more Shlomos and Moshes are playing."

space between notes

(I'm sure i read that somewhere--music wasn't notes, but the space between notes. I'm not really sure what it means, though)

music cannot be described in any words. They are too trivial, too small to make its meaning accurate. Even poets who put words so beautifully feels that what they say about music is just a mere void of sth they want to catch, put into language frames but what evaporates within a second
