To your ears it holds more potential. You can't say for an entire species -- particularly when you later explain the importance of the individual listener in the musical experience -- that harmony is better. Enthusiasts of phrase and form, or just of an old-fashioned melody, are often to be found cowering with fingers in ears, their sole consolation in reflection upon a tradition that has lasted centuries and survived greater assaults.
The battle is far from over.
Gee I wonder which side you're on, Rob. We live in an age of widespread musical obesity. I'll turn it down.
And finally, my favourite: "It's hard to imagine a human mind going any further in writing great music. Pack up your efforts and head to the glass bead game.
Just a sampling of a truly offensive collection of hegemonic bullshit. I am not stupid, Rob.
My experience of music is valid. What makes this book so frustrating is that my experience, and that of literally anyone non-Western, and probably most peoples', is completely invalidated.

Historically, music has been universally valued for its psychological and physiological effects on humans Murrock Ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Florence Nightingale have documented the therapeutic uses of music for healing purposes White A comprehensive review of music theory is beyond the scope of this paper, but basic discussions of the five elements of music are provided. Musical compositions are complex blends of expressively organized sound consisting of five elements: rhythm, melody, pitch, harmony and interval Bunt As proposed by the MMM, these five elements are vital when selecting music to invoke both psychological and physiological responses within the listener.
As the second element, melody is the sequencing of musical pitch and intervals between musical notes. Melody is a form of non-verbal communication that can elicit a broad spectrum of emotions from one extreme response happy, calm and euphoric to another sad, anxious and angry. The number of cycles that a particular sound vibrates per second is the third element, pitch. Faster vibrations cause high-pitched tones that are usually associated with cheerful or happy reactions.
On the other hand, slower vibrations cause lower tones and typically connote dreariness or depression. The vibration rate per unit of time can influence an emotional response as rapid vibrations and are viewed as stimulating and slow vibrations are considered as relaxing Bunt The fourth element is the product of blending pitches together to form a combination of sounds known as harmony, which links rhythm to the melody. These blended combinations can be characterized as consonant or dissonant Bunt and form distinct patterns from the simultaneous musical notes resulting in a musical chord.
In conjunction with timbre, which is the quality of sound, the composition of chords results in a specific sound that enables a person to identify a particular musical instrument or type of singing voice. The fifth and final element is interval, which is the distance between two notes. As evidenced by the rich variety of music among cultures, the five elements of music, along with its set of rules, combine a finite range of sounds in an infinite number of ways.
As one of the oldest and most accepted modes for expressing cultural diversity, music elicits emotional responses and stimulates movement that can be used for therapeutic purposes. Over the years, workers in various schools of thought have worked to explain the psychological responses of music to alter mood and serve as auditory distraction.Perception of complex harmony is the rarest of listening skills.
