20 Interesting Facts About Music

Although it seems that music is simple, and we often take it for granted, it is one of the most complex and amazing things in the whole universe. Based on mathematical principles, the music is incredible, at least because the waves of certain frequencies in combination create melodies that have the most positive effect on us.



In fact, music is something built into the physical system of our world. It follows from the same laws of physics and mathematics that order our world into molecules and atoms.

It also affects our brain - the most advanced computer in the world. In order to truly understand music, you need to know both about the complexity of the physical world and about the smallest details of the field of biology. And although this list will not have boring explanations of complex issues, we are going to talk about some exciting things about music, as well as its influence in our world.
