On December 21, 2020, a historical date, Jupiter and Saturn aligned. These planets had not met for 800 years. On this not accidental date, the book by composer Louis Siciliano entitled MUSIC MULTIVERSE EXPLORATION: A new Cosmology of Sound (Magic&Unique Books) was released in 60 countries around the world in pre-order.
The Neapolitan composer Louis Siciliano who lives between Los Angeles, New York and London took more than 20 years to develop this musical meta-language.
In the introduction of this precious book aimed at composers, instrumentalists and all music creatives who are looking for new musical territories to explore, one can read the following:
“Once, the great Wayne Shorter told me that Charlie Parkerlistened to a musician performing dodecaphonic music, took out his sax and began to play. Someone asked him: “What you’re playing?” He answered: “I’m playing lakes, rivers, trees, clouds, the sea.” Quantum physics and the latest scientific research have established that there is a sacred architecture, a harmonic law that underlies everything that happens in the Cosmos. In what we call the overtone series, there is the key to everything. Music contains the mystery of life and is connected to the sciences and the infinite dimensions in which all of us are immersed. I repeated to myself, “there must be a universal law that regulates the life of musical structures,” like the Einstein theory of relativity. “As above, so below,” the hermetics said. The law that permeates music is the same that moves and regulates the Universes. I began to deepen the immense didactic work of Slominsky, Schillinger, Hindemith and Messiaen, not to mention the works of the eternal J.S. Bach. From all these studies, I have been able to identify a fundamental concept in music: Symmetry. From the symmetry of intervalic structures, I then landed at MUSIC MULTIVERSE EXPLORATION. Through this meta-language, every architect-composer-performer will be able to freely build his own neighborhood, so to say, or an entire city, why not? Stravinsky said: “freedom for me is to be aware of the borders”. The peculiarity of MUMEx (MUSIC MULTIVERSE EXPLORATION) is that it will ensure that each neighborhood (structural element) is in harmony and in complete coherence with the other districts. MUMEx therefore, is a management model that serves to “freely organize” the melodic flow, counterpoint lines, sound agglomerates, rhythmic figures and the tonal microstructures created by the composers-performers.”
This book will be available on Amazon and in all specialized bookstores around the world starting January 2, 2021.
