70 Lines on Words and Notes (Reflections on Reading Music)

1. One, wan, 1. Aan, æn, ain, anne, ayn (the eye in Arabic). Open ō to close ō. The sound of o is historically short, close to 0 (zero).

2. The Choronometre is an instrument consisting of just two parts. A ruler and a pendulum. All the different measures and movements of music can be reduced to two and three time, duple and triple time. Thus by determining the movements of music in relation to these two simple measures, it is determined for all other composed measures.

3 Is a quaver a syllable ? ♪ What is ⅛th of a word ♫ a stutter ? (see 35.)

4. In the Rigveda (c. 1500 and 1200 BC) the word is measured in four quarters. Sound is divided into three inaudible parts and the fourth that is audible. Three quarters, concealed in secret, cause no movement. The fourth is the quarter that is spoken…

5. Swann’s five notes. The fifth. Musical notes are divided into five values: the round, the white, the black, the crochet, and double crochet. However, there is much more than five degrees of movement in music, these five numbers are not enough to mark them all.

6. Notes might be hieroglyphs in operation.
8. Immusicality might be an answer to the corpse of musicology…

9. Let us speak more for barbarism. Yes to contrary speech, to form contrary to purity.

10. Au/Oral. see 1.

11. See 2.

12. Tuning

13. Eaves and drop. To catch what comes from eaves, to listen under windows.

14. Isochrone: words and notes in equal time.

15. Humming…humming…in what key, what frequency, what density ? Hmm.

16. Barbarism: added “not in use”. Johnsnon’s Dictionary

17. E has two sounds, long as 'scène' and short as 'pen'. Sometimes e stands in silence when it is in love.
