So: apparently musical pitches have to correspond to the frequency of the rhythm in some obscure mathematical way.
"The 60, 72, or 84, or 120 per minute is a BASS, or basis. It is the bottom note of the harmony."
Ezra Pound, Guide to Kulchur.
It's true pitch is composed of rhythmic beats. But why multiples of twelve? Now I'll stay awake worrying. You crazy muttervukker. I feel like swearing in fake Yiddish. Oy nachos shvibberblith.
