Short note on Music

Music is an art form that has prearranged sounds and quiet. It is articulated in terms of pitch (which contains melody and harmony), rhythm (which contains tempo and meter), and the quality of sound (which contains timbre, articulation, dynamics, and texture).

Music may as well absorb generative forms in time through the construction of patterns and combinations of natural stimuli principally sound. Music may perhaps be used for artistic or aesthetic, communicative, entertainment, traditional or religious purposes. The meaning of what constitutes music varies according to culture and social context, with various interpretations of the term being established under sub-genres of the art. Within "the arts", music can be classified as a performing art, a fine art, or an auditory art form

The history of music predates the written word and is tied to the improvement of each exclusive human culture. The development of music among humans occurred next to the backdrop of natural sounds like birdsong and the sounds other animals use to converse. primeval music, once more normally called ancient music, is the name given to all music created in preliterate cultures (prehistory), beginning somewhere in very late geological history.
