music begins with silence
then, a single note sounds and becomes a melody
when it is defined in time and space,
in relationship to a second note.
harmony is the relationship between notes sounding at the same time.
harmony has a relationship with the melody,
and with itself with a change of chord.
music is about the relationships between notes.
and it is the relationships that bring relevance.
in isolation there is no relevance
we dont exist in isolation
