#beginquote# Hi guys, sorry for the long questions, but this has been boggling my mind recenetly and it ties in to this discussion: So, what actually is the history of music? I mean, did all the theory/notation/scale stuff start in Medieval times? What other known forms were there that could have influenced this? Like what was the first scale created? From what and where did it all begin? And, how is the development of music theory linked with Christianity and the Bible in general? (Specific cases would be nice too e.g certain scales being linked with the Devil.) Was Christianity a major influence on music, or the only influnce in the creation of scales? If this is case then, finally, if - hypothetically Christianity did not exist and some other form of power and control was in it's place, in what way would that change and influence music and music theory? What I'd also really like to look into is what factors influenced the evolution of music.. I mean, it started pure and simple presumably by singing or tapping on drums (whatever) before Christianity, but is the expansion of music and notation into more advanced realms a benefactor of Christianity? (heh, yeah it's long, but this is fascinating stuff - any links would be helpful too) #endquote#
