Whatever floats your boat...

I agree with the notion that there is no universal answer to the question when that happens, there's only individual ones. For some rythm suffices, some require a note to be played, some a melody. The question is really, when does the sound begin to awaken desirable emotion in the listener.

Ah, when it awakens desirable emotion...TopicalTuber touched upon this a bit.

I love all the creative ways people have in expressing their answer.
Thanks Peter!

Hmmm... so I was going to say it is the point where sound meets mathematics, and I filmed a vid of me playing a piece of a song I had written long ago, demonstrating how the math in music effects emotions... and then you go and prove it was not music. okay I am sitting this one out.
Nice job.

Chig!! You whimp. Where's your fartitude!!!

@Chig, Pen said nearly the exact same thing,..and just so you know, your farts will always be music to my ears. Way better the yodeling. Hmm, now I'm picturing you yodeling out your arse.
@ Peter, what about the music in the silent spaces between the the notes and beats?,..what, you don't hear that?,...yeah,..NOW you do, don't you? Glad I could help. When you start having the weird dreams and seeing the tracers, just eat more cabbage before bedtime. When your roommate complains, tell him it was Syd's idea,..thanks.

@Chig: I haven't proven anything. Just how I as an individual see it. Also, have you considered the possibility of you knowing more about music than me? Cause I know only what I can hear and that's not all that much (earwax). I had no idea this could be disencouraging to anyone. Make your vid, you whimp ;-)

@Blanch: I think the silent spaces between notes and beats are definitely part of the music as long as there is a compelling melody that they are part of. The silent spaces alone are just that. Empty space. A rythm _to me_ is more than sound yet less than music.

Sometimes, like if you have, say, colicky twins....or if you have, say, a house full of teenage boys and a David...or if you are taking guitar lessons and they're not going so well, the silence itself is the music. Just sayin' :-)

Excellent point, Ruth. When it is that sound awakens desirable emotion does in fact depend on everyone's unique situation and experiences.
