A guide for music: compositions, events, forms, genres, groups, history,
industry, instruments, language, live music, musicians, songs, musicology,

Music is a human activity which involves
structured and audible sounds, which is used for artistic or aesthetic,
entertainment, or ceremonial purposes.
The traditional or classical European aspects
of music often listed are those elements given primacy in European-influenced
classical music: melody, harmony, rhythm, tone color/timbre, and form. A more
comprehensive list is given by stating the aspects of sound: pitch, timbre,
loudness, and duration.
Common terms used to discuss particular pieces
include melody, which is a succession of notes heard as some sort of unit;
chord, which is a simultaneity of notes heard as some sort of unit; chord
progression, which is a succession of chords (simultaneity succession); harmony,
which is the relationship between two or more pitches; counterpoint, which is
the simultaneity and organization of different melodies; and rhythm, which is
the organization of the durational aspects of music.

What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous—two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention. Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures.
The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex missed Irene when she was away. He was jealous when she paid attention to other parrots, or even people. He liked to show her who was boss. He loved to dance. He sometimes became bored by the repetition of his tests, and played jokes on her. Sometimes they sniped at each other. Yet nearly every day, they each said, "I love you."
Alex and Irene stayed together through thick and thin—despite sneers from experts, extraordinary financial sacrifices, and a nomadic existence from one university to another. The story of their thirty-year adventure is equally a landmark of scientific achievement and of an unforgettable human-animal bond.
