Another Music "Nerdy" Post

This one goes out to you composers reading. (All one of you. Thank you Stephen.)

To these composer's credit... If it weren't for these melodious, dulcet, euphonious, mellifluous moments in music composition, we would have no soundtrack for : Jaws, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Psycho, The Matrix, There Will Be Blood... pretty much any score that uses atonality.

Just for fun, if you are interested in how music tonality ended up where it is today, here is the shortest "history of music tonality" you'll ever read: Chant, Josquin, Palestrina, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Berlioz, Wagner, Schoenberg, Debussy, Stravinsky, Bartok Penderecki, Philip Glass, Steven Reich, The Beatles, The end.

That's hilarious. I just forwarded the link to the group of composers that I meet with weekly here in Nashville.
