Musical notes

M m M m on 2001-07-09 05:43 [#00013271]

I think that regarding melody, when you go from a lower
key/note/pitch to a higher note, it gives an emotional
feeling of happiness and outgoingness. On the other hand, if
you go from a higher note to a lower one, it gives an
emotional feeling of sorrow. This makes sense, because
higher notes have more energy (closer sound wavelengths).
THIS is why the music of my favorite artist
( sounds so absurdly emotional,
looking at things positively one second and negatively the
very next second. It's like telling a story.

Well either that or... uh, nevermind.

the way i see it is a minor chord is sad and a major chord
is happy.

also, the black notes sound sad and the white notes sound

I can make the black notes dance and the white notes drink

This is what I was taught, and I think it's true. The white
notes generally sound happy, but playing white notes with
the black ones can make a sinister, sad, or eerie tune. It
can also be happy, like chariots of fire. Happy tune, played
on both black and white notes.

I think pink notes give an overwhelming sense that you all
have smelly foreskins!
fucking pointless

I never understood the purpose of the black and white keys.
I thought it was to conserve space. (if they were all big
white keys, the keyboard would stretch really long). I just
try to ignore them, and pretend that the whole keyboard is a
long row of keys, ignoring everything except the octaves.
(C-4's sound good with C-5's etc.) It makes it difficult to
play off the top of your head, the keys confuse me because
of their seemingly idiotic layout. But if you sequence onto
the computer, you can take all the time you need to find the
next key.
