212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
ace said:The Kilrathi seem more religious than artistic, so make it sound religious and expell any ideas about microtonality or other academic inventions.
ace said:The reason we think some things sound good is because we're so used to them, so the more inventive you are, the worse it will sound.
Yeah, except that such a reasonable case can only be made for human standards, not universal ones - not having encountered any intelligent creatures other than humans, we can't really assume they'll stick to the same standards.Delance said:Some people who study aesthetics could disagree. There’s a reasonable case that there are universal standards for beauty on arts, and on music.
Bandit LOAF said:The only reference to the Kilrathi having anything to do with music that I can think of at 1 AM is the group of Kilrathi singers from Fleet Action.
TigerNobleHeart said:I wonder if they dance as well. Seriously. I mean, sadly, we never get to see too much about their culture. ("Idiot's Guide To Everything Kilrathi...") I wonder if they have any kind of dances; something similiar to our waltzes or something....
Bandit LOAF said:They do -- it's a group of Kilrathi "singers and dancers".
Edfilho said:I for one respect the academic work involved in atonal music and the like, but I can't be brought to enjoy it. Intelectually it may be the cat's pajamas, but aestethically it is kind torturing... Although I do think it may be perfect for "music made by aliens".
