   Marshall Lefferts - Circle of Fifths, “Cosmometry of Music”.

Cosmometry is the study and application of the fundamental patterns, structures, processes and principles that are at the foundation of all manifestation in the Universe, both Physical and Metaphysical. In its Essence, Cosmometry is about Energy and Consciousness - Energy being that which everything Physical is comprised (vibration, radiation, mass, angular momentum, etc) and consciousness being that which everything Metaphysical is comprised (awareness, emotion, mind, intuition, spirit, etc). 

This diagram shows musical system known as the Circle of Fifths, which forms specific Geometries.

Simply, it’s the interval between the first and fifth notes of a major scale. For example, in the key of A the fifth note is E (A=1, B=2, C#=3, D=4, E=5, etc). This interval is so primary and profound in Music it is actually called the “Perfect Fifth.” In the world of classical Music theory, one of the ways to show fundamental relationships is to array the 12 notes around a circle following a sequence of fifths, as in the diagram. This shows that there is a progression in Music that naturally moves or cycles through all 12 keys in a way that is harmonically pleasing to our senses.

All Matter is a Vibration in the structure of Space-Time and the study of the structure of Space is called Geometry, therefore Music and Matter itself is Geometry in Motion.

Physics of Sound

Traveling Waves

Sound is produced when something vibrates. The vibrating body causes the medium (water, air, etc.) around it to vibrate. Vibrations in air are called traveling longitudinal waves, which we can hear. Sound waves consist of areas of high and low pressure called compressions and rarefactions, respectively. Shown in the diagram below is a traveling wave. The shaded bar above it represents the varying pressure of the wave. Lighter areas are low pressure (rarefactions) and darker areas are high pressure (compressions). One wavelength of the wave is highlighted in red. This pattern repeats indefinitely. The wavelength of voice is about one meter long. The wavelength and the speed of the wave determine the pitch, or frequency of the sound. Wavelength, frequency, and speed are related by the equation speed = frequency * wavelength. Since sound travels at 343 meters per second at standard temperature and pressure (STP), speed is a constant. Thus, frequency is determined by speed / wavelength. The longer the wavelength, the lower the pitch. The 'height' of the wave is its amplitude. The amplitude determines how loud a sound will be. Greater amplitude means the sound will be louder.
