Re: Why the music is music and the noise is noise?

Peter, there is a very large cultural aspect to this.  For example, Arabic music
with its different tonal scale sounds like noise to westerners just as our
tempered twelve tone scale sounds to them like noise.  I recall graduate courses
in linguistics where we were told that patern is what you impose on chaos.
