The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Galileo, in his book 'Two New Sciences' talked about music theory.
He said that the octave sound was "rather too bland and lacks fire.
But the musical interval called the _______ , he describe as
causing "a tickling of the eardrum so that its gentleness is
modified by sprightliness, giving the impression simultaneously of
a gentle kiss and of a bite." Name the musical interval Galileo
The interval of the fifth or the 3/2 ratio. Example in the key
of C the fifth would be G. So you would be playing C and G.
Remember your piano lessons where your C chord was C/E/G?
We had no winners. Seems your harmony theory smarts was out of tune
on this one.
