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

I would go as far as stating that music is an abstraction in the brain of
the beholder.
For some of us, who practice anything from diddley-aye to electroacoustic
composition, this is definitely the case.

On another note ;-), everybody can sing, it just sounds different....

        We've got one. It's called the brain.

        Music is in the ear of the beholder.
