The Superiority of Music over the Language
of Today

 

Integrated Communication through Feeling and Understanding


The Capacity
of Information
in Language
and Music

 

 


Density of Information in Speech and Music

Without exhausting its inner breath, music today is much more successful in bringing the flow of information to a level where our language would border on the grotesque. Thus, music can communicate even to the simple listener on the level of his feeling and understanding simultaneously.

Here, we find a practical superiority of music to the language of today. Whereas human language predominantly operates flatly and with categoric meanings to convey information, music has the dimension of the manifoldly structured musical sound-space at its disposal.

Therefore, music allows for a far greater capacity of information, a far greater density of information than our language. Besides, music takes into account the mental-spiritual, analytical ability of today's man.

Just as a picture is comprehended much more accurately and incomparably faster - more directly - through the sense of sight than through a verbal description of the picture, a truth may be communicated much more precisely and faster through the medium of music than through the spoken word.

The value of human speech, as compared to the language of music, demands a profound investigation.
