# APPLIED_AESTHETICS -- -- Index

1. Applied Aesthetics is determination and study of those things that arise as certainties or laws out of the observation of Art works and their structural material one uses to make Art with. (Exact Music Theory is based on these and it is an integral part of Applied Aesthetics.) It includes advanced material and tools for use in appreciating, learning, studying, practicing, performing, composing, arranging, improvising and creating Music. 2. Applied Aesthetics would cover Temperament, Tonality, Gradual Gamuts Tonal and Harmonic, and the subject of Consonance and Dissonance. 3. Applied Aesthetics is limited only to examination, observation, consideration, testing, conclusions and formation of Theory on the nature of existing known and yet to exist potential Music preferences, plus the formation of any observed laws governing these but does not include any study of individual Taste. 4. Applied Aesthetics is not Musicology. It is the product of a 25 years research project in the field of Music, Human Hearing and Acoustics that led to a bulk of new major discoveries and breakthroughs about Music, codifying it into a set of uniformly applicable axioms regardless of Music form or genre that are founded on natural law, and to an Exact Music Theory.

# APPLIED_AESTHETICS_SYMBOL -- -- Index & Glossary Instructions

The Applied Aesthetics symbol consists of the original form of the first letter of the Ancient Greek Alphabet: a white Alpha that symbolizes Aesthetics, and its reflection on blue that represents a lake mirroring it, which symbolizes symmetry and the fact all basic Music elements either in a way heavily relate to, or even stem from symmetry.

# EXACT MUSIC THEORY -- -- Index

1. Exact Music Theory is Music Theory that is precisely defined, term for term, concept for concept, everything is put in order presented as an advance from simple to composite, not complex. There are absolutely no complexities in Exact Music Theory, care was taken for anything complex to be gotten out of the way. 2. Music Theory is not "canceled" or discredited by Exact Music Theory, as the later demonstrates the validity of a great part of its rules as founded by natural law. Many brilliant Theoreticians of the past provided us each with valuable "pieces of the puzzle" and without their work our Exact Music Theory as a subject that stands some trillion light years more advanced than old Music Theory, would have never been accomplished. 3. It is that lower part of Applied Aesthetics which investigates the whys of formulated rules and laws of things discovered in the past and states them clearly on subjects like Music Theory, Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue and Improvisation.

# GRADUAL_GAMUT -- -- Index

--
1. The use of the concept of a tone's certain property and its relation towards a Reference Tone, with the purpose of arranging all tones in an order of tones presenting a gradual increase of this property in each tone contained in it, implemented to determine Tonality, the Consonance or Dissonance degree of a Chord, Interval, Scale or Melody tone, against the whole of a composition, or the close or distant character of a Modulation in one, etc. 2. A Gradual Gamut is series of Tones indicating a gradual increase of a certain property of an associative nature among Music Tones and each tone in it, in relation to a Reference Tone round which the gradual gamut is built. Gradual Gamuts of Tones are the main means of determining various types of order among music tones.

# MUSIC -- -- Index

1. A universal language expressing emotions 2. Music is that Art expressed through sound. 3. Music regarding structure is arrangements of tones through the consideration and employment of various types of order regarding their Duration, Pitch, Volume and Color. 4. Music is based on our subjective impression of sound and exists according to logarithmic peculiarities of function of the ear, rather than, as a perception based on an unaltered or accurate or linear registering of sounds as they exist in nature.

# MUSIC THEORY --- -- Index

--

Music Theory was a forefather of Exact Music Theory. Music Theory as found in the bulk of relevant books, is usually a mere collection of rules given without an in depth explanation, but simply as a record of the thing that is generally and commonly practiced in some specific Music genre or style. "That is what is generally and commonly practiced" was the best type of explanation given in it because most of the types of explanations attempted in Music Theory were usually based on more theory, rather than proofs or observation. Most often the student was told or was led to believe that the reasons the rules were so were "self-evident" or "obvious" with almost never being instructed where to look for such evidence.

# REFERENCE_TONE ---- -- Index

1. The TONE round which a Gradual Gamut is built. You could also build one round a chord, in that case that would be a "Reference Chord." 2. The tone on which a Gradual Gamut is applied in actual practice. Many different Gradual Gamuts can be applied to the same Reference Tone. You could even apply a Gradual Gamut built on one Tone to another in any combination. That would be a Structural Reference Tone imposed on an Application Reference Tone. Each Music genre seems very selective and persistent about the way this is done to the final effect that this is exactly what characterizes the genre.

# SYMMETRY --- -- Index

--

This almost forgotten and abandoned Art called Symmetry meant for Ancient Greeks more than placing to the left something similar with whatever has been placed to the right. Symmetry meant by actual words contained: "The Art of Analogies"-- SYN ("with, plus") and, METRON ("meter, numeration, canon" (and canon means also "law".) The idea was a pursuit of certain analogies in Architecture that would cause certain impressions.

# TASTE --- -- Index

It is the nature and quality of an individual's preferences and a factor regulating and above any preferences an individual might be manifesting. Taste can in an apparently random and unlimited way vary from individual to individual and within the same individual.
