A huge part of the information we receive through hearing is perceived through a non-verbal level, usually unconsciously. Some sounds and their combinations lull us to sleep, while others irritate or soothe us. Through timbre, volume, tempo, rhythm, and pauses, we can convey meanings that extend beyond words. In music, these basic means of expression are used quite consciously, with a whole system of symbols — a language of its own —that originated in ancient times and continues to improve today.
We will discuss sound and rhythm as fundamental elements of the musical universe, exploring the origins of music and its connection with nature. Additionally, we'll delve into how musical language helps us understand each other without words.

You'll listen to music by Cowell, Cage, Chopin, Druch, Debussy, and others.
