    I think one aspect of music is easy to understand: rythm. Our body has several internal rythms (the hartrate, the "electronic pulses" that act as a clock in your brain - for want of a better word), and they can determine what mood you are in.

    I've seen the following experiment several times, always succesful: a group of young children is placed in a room with music, the rythm of the music is gently increased, then decreased again. Once the rythm gets faster than the average heartrate the children start playing and running around, feeling restless; when the rythm has decrease below the average heartrate again the children one by one sit down, feel relaxed and even sleepy.

    But there's a lot more to music ofcourse, much of it is a mystery to me as well :wink: For example: why does a A-minor (or any minor chord) sound sad, while an A-major always sounds happy?

    i saw an experiment too on Chapel's show.

    He plays the drums for the African Americans and they start dancing. He plays the electric guitar for Americans and they start dancing. He plays the piano for the Latinos and they start dancing. They only dance to those specific musical instruments.

    I dont know but i think music is related to beauthy. Beauty in another dimension (observed with another sensor of creators) may be! If you look at the beauty thread here, you may undertand what i am talking about (the relation between music and beauty).
