2005. 156 pages. Item #10026
Paperback in new condition.
The science of harmonic attunement is the science of the soul. The search for the soul is the hero's quest, and only comes into being from the quest itself. This book attempts to support this quest through an analysis of Aristoxenus' Elementa Harmonica (c. 360 B.C.), from which Mitzi DeWhitt reveals the objective science of universal vibrations, which the Pythagorian Greeks understood and encoded in musical structures. Though couched in technical and complex musical theory this book clarifies the theories behind ancient Greek music. Still, a slow connecting of the dots produces images that contain meaning and make a bridge from the phenomenal world into the noumenal realm.
