The Chord Turned Upside Down
Welcome to the dark side …
No, not Aussie music, not that there’s anything wrong with the convict heritage… This Chap is actually very partial to Midnight Oil, in particular…
… whose polemic against corporate exploitation of both natural resources and people with no other choice came some 27 years ago!
.. and I assume we are also not back to Pink Floyd so please - do go on …
… because we aren’t exactly searching for this Chord are we? Just inverting it?
That is correct …
… because we know that Status Quo have already searched for the fourth chord - and apparently not found it?
No, none of these interruptions play into the key points of this offering. In fact - almost the opposite.
Cough … ‘almost’ the opposite?
Good Grief! May I please get back to the plot …
There’s a plot?
This Chap came across some odd experiments in music, posing the question – what happens if you invert the notes of a well-known piece of We music?
As against, say, playing New Age music backwards, with the non opposite result of .. well ..New Age Music?
If I may continue: Some mad genius (Andrew Huang) decided that Beethoven’s music seemed to lend itself to inversion.
And he threw down a challenge to others. A gauntlet rapidly picked up …
After watching Andrew Huang’s inversion of Beethoven and inviting people to do the same… Bach’s music is probably the safest to start with, I admit. But also a great one to start with!
Original song: Contrapunctus 4 (from the Art of Fugue) by J. S. Bach
All well and good. Even this is (arguably) justifiable.
Ahem. But then we get to a place the Chaps have warned about before: Just because one can do it, does not mean one should. Case in point:
Does that make it One Seventh Of A Nation Army, or one about the size of Monaco’s? But we digress…
We certainly do. Anyway, as our final, er, drow on this subject –
