Rethinking Music

During eras of negative mass mood, the arts revolt. This has been well-described by Robert Prechter and others (see Popular Culture and the Stock Market for more details).

This is something to keep an eye on, for those interested in the arts, or who don't want to be taken by surprise by the odd sounds that will be emanating from their radios sooner rather than later.

The Bohlen-Pierce scale is one example that could catch on. I don't have much depth of knowledge on music theory, so I won't pretend to give out details - you can examine it yourself. I will just say that first, it is interesting this was developed independently in the 1970's and early 1980's (an era of negative mass mood in general) and second, if there is a new eruption in the music world, stay aware - both for reasons of potential investment and support as well as using the changes as a marker of coming social change.
