  The Science of Music
       
 
The Scope of the Science of Music


 
 
 
The sci­ence of mu­sic deals with the or­gan­ized, sys­tem­atic knowl­edge of mu­sic. To­day, the term ”sci­ence of mu­sic” has a very nar­row mean­ing, and this re­sults from the fact that the com­po­si­tional re­al­ity of mu­sic has been buried un­der su­per­fi­cial in­ter­pre­ta­tion, and that there­fore the origi­nality of the mu­si­cal state­ment, and within it the true knowl­edge of mu­sic, no longer reaches the ana­lyz­ing ex­pert.

 
Limits of the Conventional Science of Music
 
 
The sci­ence of mu­sic is con­cerned with the ori­gin of mu­sic, the es­sence of mu­sic, and the mu­si­cal or­ders and the pa­rame­ters which move within these or­ders. More­over, it is con­cerned with the mu­si­cal means as well as with the mu­si­cal goal, and with the pro­ce­dure of cul­tural-ar­tis­tic feed­back – and also with the very life of the art­ist, his crea­tive po­ten­tial, and with crea­tiv­ity in gen­eral.

 
The Holistic Structure of Knowledge in the Discipline of Music
 
 
Fur­ther­more the sci­ence of mu­sic is con­cerned with the proc­ess of in­ner-hu­man evo­lu­tion, the struc­ture and the func­tion­ing of the in­di­vid­ual per­son­al­ity, and with a clear knowl­edge of the ori­gin of cre­at­ing mu­sic, as dif­fer­ent from the knowl­edge of the source of mu­sic, and as dif­fer­ent again from the outer pe­riph­ery of mu­sic his­tory.

   
 
How­ever, the sci­ence of mu­sic also deals with the natu­ral duty of the com­poser, with the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the mu­si­cian, and fi­nally with the en­tire field of re­spon­si­ble mu­si­cal train­ing and mu­si­cal edu­ca­tion.
