Quotes

Jake Bohm: The chromatic scale consists of 12 tones. Arranged in time and sequence. These 12 simple tones create an infinite variety of music. Harmony and dissonance, tension and resolution - all can be described by the mathematical ratios between tones. If we could translate all ratios into sound? We could hear the Music of the Spheres; a sound as immense, as powerful as the universe itself. As quiet as a single stone. As beguiling as the human heart. For some, music elevates the spirit to a place of transcendent beauty. Others simply hear the beauty in the numbers themselves. The Earth, as it rotates, emits a frequency, a musical note, at 7.83 hertz. But this frequency alters slightly, for reasons as yet uncertain. Some postulate solar flares as the cause, or electrical disturbance in the atmosphere. But maybe there's a simpler explanation. Maybe the sound of the planet is influenced by the seven billion souls whirring around it, each producing their own music, adding their own harmony.
