There have been lots of varied definitions of music, depending on the writer's idea of, or gratitude for, music. One guy's music is another man's noise. And he specifies appropriately. One state’s Nevin is music and Bach are sound. One states Mozart to be noise and Stravinsky, music. Another reverses the meaning. Even the dictionary tells us that "music is the art of integrating tones to please the ear.”
Whose ear-- yours or my own?
A French writer, Jules Combarieu, is more basic, and states it to be "the art of thought in tone." In other words, it is an art, not a natural occurrence; it deals with media agencies montreal, and it presupposes thought; that is, informed psychological action and discrimination. "Thought, using tone as its medium, creating an artwork.”
