Default Re: musings...

One must really have one's tongue in cheek for this... It could equally be said (and has) that all music is a painting on a canvas of sound or that all sculpture is a dance in stone. However, it has also been said that talking about music is like dancing about architecture. One modality simply cannot communicate, analyse, or express the other. Nevertheless we can mix modalities poetry with music and end up with something as magnificent and timeless as the last movement of Beethoven's Choral Symphonym so there are mixed langauges with mixed modalities. By the same token we can put music with film, sculpture, stage business and other art forms, somtimes it works for most, rarely for all, and sometimes for a few. Strange isn't it? But, that's the art of it all. Can we really presume to assert that music is the transcendant art form? However it is very interesting to take something like , say, Handel's Messiah, or Mozart's Requiem which some would say is sublime and transcendant. Now, take away the music and look at the words which remain... stuttering rubbish.
