Heres a question that popped up in my head...(dont ask why!) I was curious your opinions about an alien race and their perception of pitch. Would such a race have more than the 12 tones we possess? Would it all depend on environment and ear? Or are the 12 pitches literally universal and can't be transcended? Since math is the universal language I guess that means music theory as well correct? This would completely change the looks of their instruments and I'd imagine there would be some pretty badass alien bassists... Would theory textbooks, point/counterpoint and diatonic concepts vary throughout various worlds? (LOL) This is merely a hypothetical music/math question...if you don't believe in aliens it doesn't matter... Just a thought...hey I'm drunk leave me alone!
