I was just having a thought...what if music just didn't exist?

Like picture your favorite movie. Be it anything from Lord Of The Rings to Casablanca, it would be very strange without music wouldn't it?

Your games, your movies...TV...

And most importantly, no instruments

It's really scary thought...how would your life be changed if music hadn't been discovered yet?
#2
Music isn't 'discovered', it is always there. It's a collection of sounds, and so long as sound exists, music exists.

If music didn't exist we would spend more time looking at the search bar.

I think it would be near impossible for no one to ever discover the simplicity of music. Just by drumming on a rock or something.

But to answer you're question, It would be extremely strange without music. I think that lie wold be extremely bland and boring.

Well...what if there was no way to manipulate sound into what we know as music?
#6
Impossible.

Music would HAVE to exist, for sound would exist.

However we would not perceive it. We'd just hear normal noise. Music is only music to us because of our mind interpreting specific pitches and timings. (Which is why some varieties of jazz simply are not music. Get over it, pretentious faggots.)

Uh... Yeah. It would suck, anyway. I wonder if animals hear music how we do? Or is it just vague noise to them?

Has no one ever seen Oscar's Orchestra?! If that geezer with the wig and Lucius get in charge then that's what it'll be like with no music. I forgot how badass Oscar the flying blue piano was . Kid's TV sure ain't what it was.

If music was never invented life wouldnt be any more or less entertaining as we wouldn't have realised our lives had something missing without it.

Music is very overstated in it's "life changing" qualities anyway. I don't personally think that music changes anybody. The culture surrounding it does but not the music itself.

The world wouldn't be that much different without music at all.
#16
There is actually a movement called musique concrete in which ordinary sounds (cars on the road, laughter, church bells) are recorded onto tape and then the tape is cut and spliced in certain ways to create certain effects. For example you could cut a section of tape and then stick the tape reel back together with the removed section placed back onto the reel backwards.


My point- even an ordinary sound such as a door slamming or a car going by on the road can be turned into 'music'.....so you couldn't really not have some form of music.

Then the entire world and concept of reality would be completely destroyed and the universe would probably cease to exist.

I would definitely be different without music. I need music to sleep (and not just because of habit, I've always had trouble sleeping and just recently found that music helps), I use music to drown out people on the bus, I spend a hell of a lot oftime playing music on my guitar, yes, the lack of music would change me in so many ways it would make my head explode to try and count.

If music didn't exist, we wouldn't be on the UG forums discussing life in the absence of music.

"Without music, life would be a mistake."

~Friedrich Nietzsche


That about sums it up.

Also, I don't think civilization would have made it this far. Hardly any of us would be here today, IMO.

No, there would always be the rebel, or the people who conform to something they feel strongly about.

I mean, it's not all about music, when it comes to littles cliques.

Technology seperates people (PC vs. Mac, for example), or preference in sport (American football vs. Football, for example), and whatnot.

Believe me, the human race would find something to bitch about.

I feel if there was no such thing as music, nothing would change. Everyone has answered this is question as if they music has been randomly taken away from them, when in reality, if there was no music you would have never known about it so therefore, no change in life at all.
