Ftsum Beraki ‘Hrmet Lbi’ New Eritrean Music 2017 16-11-2017
Music is the space between the notes. It is something to be felt. Although it does not has a concrete and precise definition….All of us know that music is every sound that reaches our ears and our heart says that it is something fabulous…..that is music.
Music is a play of tones, that is, of fixed, clearly defined quantities. Other sounds, glissandos, cries, noises, may occur as inserts; if they are numerous the result is partly musical; if they predominate, it is no longer music in the proper sense of the word…discussion about the nature of the new art of sounds, those part musical and those totally untonal, is beclouded by the fact that it is called concrete or electronic ‘music’ although it has in fact transgressed the boundaries of musical art.
Music is a hidden arithmetic exercise of the soul, which doesn’t know that it is counting.
