ALAIN DANIELOU MUSIC AND THE POWER OF SOUND PDF

Chapter One. All music is based on the relations between sounds, and a careful study of the numbers by which these relations are ruled brings us immediately into the almost forgotten science of numerical symbolism. Numbers correspond to abstract principles, and their application to physical reality follows absolute and inescapable laws. In musical experience we are brought into direct contact with these principles; the connection between physical reality and metaphysical principles can be felt in music as nowhere else. Music was therefore justly considered by the ancients as the key to all sciences and arts—the link between metaphysics and physics through which the universal laws and their multiple applications could be understood.

This is a brilliant book which talks not just about the mathematical but also the spiritual aspects of music. It is, however, extremely dense. It tackles a topic I have never seen tackled anywhere else: the fact that harmony is built into melody and is also an inherent part of Raag grammer. But while that book is only about the mathematical aspect, this book is also This is a brilliant book which talks not just about the mathematical but also the spiritual aspects of music.

But while that book is only about the mathematical aspect, this book is also about the origins of Swar itself. However, there are no Raag specific Shruti tables or any such here. This is not the book for that. Experience what music based on the natural scale sounds like before reading this book. On a purely intellectual basis, this book is a huge shock.

Anyway, take your time with it; maybe even years; and experience what it is talking about before moving forward. May 14, Alex Simu rated it it was amazing. This book is meant for people who are truly interested about what music really is. For some western people it might appear dramatic.

But for someone who is aquatinted with the music of the orient and perhaps India it will make natural sense. It is hard for the Europeans to accept that they are wrong or they did wrong even though many good things came out of that later on.

It is a book not only for musicians.

The tables and technical descriptions may be skipped and one can absorb only the philosophical and historical part of it. Sep 24, Russell Eric Dobda rated it liked it Shelves: philosophy. Entirely too deep to go on music without any audio sound to hear the math but great overview of the different scales used over history and why equal temperament is not a great system when it comes to musical enjoyment.

Nov 15, Axel Shaw rated it it was amazing Shelves: healing-music , awakening. Just like Sylvano Bussotti writes in the foreword, I found myself nodding sometime ecstatically! No wonder he approached the author himself to ask for a reprint! This book is a treasure and we have to thank Sylvano and the Inner Traditions crew for making it happen.

An invaluable resource.
