Music is everywhere, created by nature, people, animals, instruments. It's the sound of the world.

tough question, i guess i would go with my music teacher's definition of "Organized Sound", although that definition clearly has a few holes in it it seems to fit overall.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Sounds arranged in an intelligent and artful manner so as to be pleasing to other people.

Too vague. What is 'intelligent' and 'artful'?

Music is the arrangement of sound, or the intention of arranging sound made by a self-conscious being.

Sounds you go out of your way to sit down and make a concious effort to listen to.

Intresting thoughts so far... If anyone says "Music is Art", then define what Art is.

My tutor asked me once and I said somthing along the lines of, it was a task by the way "Music is a collection of sounds arranged in way that the listner is able to interpret the artists work as they want"

Agreed. There's got to be someone behind it, because I wouldn't consider any natural noise music, unless it's been arranged by someone to sound musical.
#17
I'd say an arrangement of sound, that brings joy to it's listeners. Could be the sound of saws or the sounds made by movements of an audience, but whatever one likes the sound of.
#18
It's sound made specifically for the entertainment (although it can be made for other purposes) of an audience, where the key focus is the dynamics, pitch and arrangement of the sounds themselves.
#19
Music is that which is audible and intended to be appreciated by a listener.

you could say that it's organized sound, but then genres like noizecore eliminate that as a possible answer. I guess any sound thats someone calls music is music.

How is noisecore an exception?

music is different for everyone. I think music is intentionally placed pitches of sound to create a melodic piece.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

even silence is music in its own way really, anything that makes a sound, arranged or not, its music.
I'd just like to say I fall into the 5% of us on this site who aren't metalheads.

Noizecore is pretty much supposed to be chaotic and noisey, not exactly very organized.


If it has a beginning and end, it is organized.

^^Beginning and an end does not make something organized..

I think we have to reconsider the use of "organized" in a definition of music.. I mean look at freeform jazz. Not really "organized" by definition... Arranged maybe, but even some jam bands don't have a defined beginning and ending point. Often time the music evolves, and builds upon itself through the direction of the musicians at the time.

Organized Sound seems so sterile to me. I had an argument about this with another member in a different thread.

That's the thing though, music does not have to be organized. John Cage was a good example of that.

That's probably the best definition you can give music.
