Music History

There is a theory on the creation of this universe and it goes something like this
God was a bass player
God hit a note so loud
This note made a big bang
Then the universe happened

There is a philosophy on the movements and placements of the sun, moon, and all the planets in this universe are strung together in a musical harmony. The Music of the Spheres, is the idea that the distance between the earth to the moon is a perfect interval and the distance between other planets is given musical intervals.

One of the most significant events in the history of music was in the 16th century. The Italian-born Composer, Jean-Baptiste Lully, dies by accidentally stabbing himself in the foot while conducting a symphony.
