Thanks for sharing, Owen, your lectures on color. Have you studied the phenomenon of difference tones, ? It is well established that these resultant tones are subjectively created in the inner ear, making our ears themselves practically the only naturally occurring objects that can create the harmonic series, which you describe in your early lecture. Members of all cultures have the same ear structure, yet these colors do not form the basis of non-western music. Why do you suppose that it was “Western” music that uniquely developed the major/minor scheme?
I just finished the final episode of The Mandalorian. This is really good stuff—the equal of or better than any of the Star Wars films. Good story line, excellent cinematic story-telling, character growth, great special effects, truly wonderful and compelling music. Plus a surprise at the very end.
