Especially D minor pentatonics, with dive bomb tremolos.
Clever descriptions of musical chords.
This is based on Just intonation, where the intervals for each key were slightly different and so able to be distinguished. I think with the equal temperament we use now the different keys are indistinguishable - all multiples of the same interval
Thank you for this, from Schumann (sp?) himself! You know, I play keyboards am in a band, I live, breathe, inhale, play, listen, laugh, cry, harmonize (harmony is magic!), with music, music music.
The suit is not me: My day job people made me put it on and it's my "handiest" photo for computer stuff.
Back to this Schumann (was it Schumann?) commentary on keys. I have heard pianos and synths most of my life. I sort of concluded on these instruments that D major wss the "cleanest" sounding key. I don't know why...don't know the "physics" of this, if there is a "physics" of this. Seems guitars are really "clean" and beautiful when played in D major. A major is pretty clean too. E major seems
"strong" to me, "supportive" of other instruments or whatever. But seems Schumann and I don't agree and, of course, I defer to the master. Anyone got comments on this? I'm new to "Stumble", don't no how to work it. Joined literally five minutes ago. Can you e-mail people who you see looked at or commented on something that you looked at? Guess I gotta' do my homework and read the site stuff. But I ran to this music site, because that's my heart::: MUSIC 24/7 would be good, too bad most of us have to eat, sleep and have day jobs. (I like my day job a lot, but I wouldn't do it so much of the time if I could split time on my own between day job and music. As you can see, I'd do music MUCH MUCH more than I get to now. I bet this is all old hat for everyone out there reading this, huh? You guys already know the "Boogie" on music lovers). (I'm a math-type professor by day). U. of Florida, USA.
What? Any major key is the same as any other, and any minor is the same as any other minor. All the intervals are exactly the same.
Was this based on the older temperament system, or the modern equal temperament that was well established long before the articel was written? Under equal temperament there should be no noticeable difference between any major keys, nor between any minor keys.
One persons' interesting perceptions of each key and the related moods associated with each.
some of them fake but still good
only applicable in the days of drastically unequally tempered instruments (old pipe organs, flutes, etc)
interesting, but 90% opinion
I don't agree with all of it, but I like the way he thought.
This may not be true... at least it's inspiring.
I wrote a little song called Googoo good'joob in the key of C, because I feel "innocent, simple, na?e and childish"
I despise this way of thinking about music. These different emotions for each key are completely based on convention. Minor keys can sound happy, major keys can sound sad... and what about atonal music?
D minor is the saddest key in existence.
