of the Musical Sound-Space
The Function of Musical Thinking
Controlling the Musical Orders
by ascertaining how pleasant his own musical thought is to himself, his feeling
informs the composer about the effect of his thought on its surroundings.
Thus, through the process of feeling, the discriminating intellect of the
musical creator analyzes the effect of his musical thought on its environment.
The faculty of understanding of his intellect analyzes the spectrum of his
musical thought, and identifies the emotional parameters which impel it.
His intellect, with the help of the feeling inherent in it, examines the integration of these musical parameters and determines the harmonious development of the composition: the inner musical event, as perceived by the sense of hearing, is the sounding testimony of this process, and it heralds human feeling and understanding.
the composer uses his mind as a medium to portray the musical sound-space:
to describe his own subjective sphere.
In this way, for the musical creator, the objective musical sound-space, that which sounds inside, becomes the instrument for describing the subjective in general.
The natural process of composing arises all by itself, and it ends with the musical creator performing, and simultaneously listening, to his own concert within himself. The composer submits this process of his musical thinking to the natural, innermost control of his feeling and understanding, and this is his own inner act of will.
This conscious, inner act of the composer creating music in his awareness becomes lateron a manifold inspiration for the music lover striving towards universal joy of life;
manifold in terms of the art of confidently striding through the infinity of his human abilities;
manifold in terms
of the course of unfoldment
of his human character;
manifold in terms
of overcoming obstacles during
the growth of his character.
In this way a manifold structure of musical orders originates within the composer's inner world of cognition, and his organizing understanding, under the guidance of his feeling, directs this inner musical course of evolution.
