UNIVERSAL MUSIC THEORY 1
The Practical Fundamentals of Universal Creativity
  PART   I      
  THE PROCESS OF CREATING MUSIC            
         
 
“Fan­tasy cre­ates re­al­ity.
This is a great cos­mic law.”

Rich­ard Wagner


   
 
The World of Enlivened Silence


 
 
 
The ori­gin of mu­sic lies in the enli­vened si­lence. Mu­sic is some­one’s very pri­vate mes­sage to his fel­low men, from the si­lence of his heart and from the si­lence of his un­der­stand­ing – com­pletely de­tached from the world of cau­sal­ity.

 
Music beyond the Laws of Causality
 
 
Mu­sic origi­nates from the in­ner free­dom of man, from the deep si­lence of the hu­man mind; it rises from the feel­ing to­wards the un­der­stand­ing and as­sumes the form of sound, com­pletely with­out any outer cause – with­out any per­ceiv­able outer pur­pose, just as a natu­ral ex­pres­sion of the in­ner, enli­vened si­lence at the depth of the hu­man heart.

 
The Impulse of Lively Silence
 
 
Mu­sic radi­ates this in­ner si­lence into the agi­ta­tion of the outer world, re­tain­ing its ex­pres­sion of na­ture-given hu­man free­dom. Thus, mu­sic ap­pears as free­dom in the gar­ment of har­mony and en­chants man for the world of pure beauty, to his own in­ner­most per­fect world, to truth.

   
 
Con­trary to popu­lar miscon­cep­tion, mu­sic is not at all meant to lure man into dream­ing; rather it is ca­pa­ble of in­creas­ing his in­ner aware­ness, pro­vided the mu­sic it­self has been cre­ated on the basis of in­ner alert­ness.

 
Music on the Basis of Inner Alertness
 
 
The ori­gin of mu­sic is where the ab­so­lu­te “Now” is ex­peri­enced by man. It is where – de­tached from space and time and there­fore freed from past, pre­sent and fu­ture – only his self-con­scious­ness exists; the ori­gin of mu­sic is where man real­izes “I am,” with­out think­ing about his past or his fu­ture.

 
Freed from Space and Time: the Absolute “Now” in Music
 
 
This first origi­nal thought of “I am,” which arises when man awak­ens, is the very first men­tal im­pulse of his in­di­vid­ual ex­is­tence in the ab­so­lu­te Now. And for the com­poser, too, this im­pulse of self-con­scious­ness is his first in­ner mu­si­cal thought.
