Description

THE GAIA OF MUSIC The universal roots of all music. Our ears and minds today are bombarded with a kaleidoscope of music from different cultures or from different periods of history. Take a few examples from thousands: Dixieland jazz, African drum polyrhythms, Mozart, Indian Hindu ragas, The Rolling Stones, Wagner’s operas, Charlie Parker, Balinese or Japanese scales, The Beatles, Bach Cantatas, Gershwin, Gregorian Chant, Stravinsky… What do all these have in common? All the myriad forms of life on this planet obey the same natural laws although they are so different on the surface. Does the same thing happen in music? This book proposes that there is a set of universal musical operations, derived from the laws of natural sound formation through aeons of evolution, and active in human minds. These operations are at work in all music we know about, past and present, although they give rise to an infinite variety of musical styles and systems. RONALD SENATOR is a Pullitzer-Prize-nominee composer of international repute whose music has been broadcast worldwide on radio and TV and has had concerts devoted entirely to his music in New York, London, Sydney, Prague, Moscow, St. Petersburg and elsewhere. “Superb music… warrants comparison with Shostakovich…. just as compelling” said the American Record Guide. “A composer of real stature” wrote the New York Times. He is also an acclaimed author: his book “Requiem Letters” was called “astounding and wonderful” by the London Spectator, and “deeply moving and haunting” by the US Publishers Weekly. Dr Senator also has a reputation in Academia. He was Professor at London University, where he directed the Social Science Research Council Program in Musical Education, and a Visiting Professor at numerous Universities including the M.I.T. and Queens College in the USA, Toronto and McGill in Canada, Melbourne, Canberra and Queensland in Australia.
