Some people says, that music is part of the human culture. But what, if music was before people? There are various questions, maybe without rational or logical answers, but with intuitive answers.
If You speed up by most octaves, for example sound of Your speech You get something, which is littlebid similar to the sound of chirping bird. Also, bird songs can listen human at first time. After hear those singers at the heaven, he started to use voice for singing. This was our first musical instrument, which We have everybody. Some nations can also sing two notes or three, at once. This is so magical musical instrument. After some years, maybe centuries people invented various musical instruments, also for rituals, or melodies. I think on percussions and some melodical instruments, for example flutes. Flute was first constructed melodic instruments by human, but drums have also functions, for example like ritual musical instruments.
Do You know, that first transverse flute was created in India? There is also another thing to discovere in India, the first classical music in our world. There is one concept (nadabrahma) which means, sound of universe. Some philosophers also says, that those people, who knows secret of music, know secret of space. Theory of music and maths were published together in one book and due to those things people of India said, that music is prt of the universe.
Indian classical music countains drone tones, also melody (raga) and rhythm (tala). But, those classifications are not same, as in our western classical music. If people of India plays Raga or Tala, they are connected with universe.
We try look also to the ancient Greece, where Pythagoras says also those things, that maths and music are very similar and tried to cound musical intervals and tones by using monochord. Due to those things, Pythagoras really discovere music of the spheres. Pythagoras via monochord discovere overtones, or natural harmonies. If You play Guitar, maybe therm Flageolet isn’t unknown to You. Those things was happened on the monochord. There are also some cultures, which can sing those overtones, nowadays, some people from the United states, or another countries try to learn overtone (or throat) singing too, so this culture isn’t only known for tibetian monks, or Mongolians and Tuvans.
There are some evidences, that those natural harmonies were counted before Pythagoras by Chinese people and of those, five tones were selected to create pentatonic scale. This scale was also called celestial scale, so for Chinese music was also part of the universe.
Main musical elements are pitch, melody, rhythm and harmony. There is also some music, which is without melody, or harmony, as We understand in the west. I have discovered, that nature has also music of birds, leaves, or sea, rain, or wind, streaming water ETC. Music wasn’t created by human, music is part of the universe.
