Default Re: Defining moments in music

When the first caveman banged two rocks together and found out it was a good way to pick up chicks.

When the Indians divided the string, millennia before Pythagoras; right Abe?

When Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night's Dream. (and found out it was a good way to pick up chicks.)

When a hedge trimming accident produced the first male castrato.

When Bach realized harmony was math, and idea he borrowed from Rameau; but no Frenchman could ever come up with an idea that good.

Two words: Free jazz.
