heterophony is common in non-western music
One of the interesting things I’ve noticed with regard to music is that music in general tends to be more heterophonic than it is western. I’ve also noticed this in the more academic spheres in which I find myself, specifically in science. In western music, there tends to be a lot more separation between the instrument (or instruments) and the voice (or individual singer), whereas in non-western music the instrument and the voice are fused together.
In recent years, Ive noticed that this fusion tends to get into the mainstream. This is particularly true of the music which can be categorized as rock, pop, techno, and electronic. I can think of a few examples of music that has blended western and non-western music together and been marketed as “western” without even knowing it, like the music for the Harry Potter movies.
This is a common story in pop music. In Western pop music, a singer can blend a western instrument or voice with more mainstream instruments or voices. The music is often packaged so that it sounds like it was made in the west. By contrast, in non-western music, the instrument and the singer is fused together.
This is just a generalization, but it’s also true that western pop music is often more “serious” music. That is, the music is more polished and polished up in a way that non-western music doesn’t get. It’s also also more difficult to perform. Western pop music is often played on radio, which means that it has to be performed by a professional musician.
That’s why Western music often sounds as realigned to the lyrics as non-western music. Because western music is so polished and refined, the music itself has to be played by a professional musician.
I’ve had my share of Western music, and I’ve heard it all, but I’ve never really understood why it was the norm. Western pop music seems to be a bit more serious than non-western music. I think it’s because it has the same type of lyrics throughout the whole song, which is why it feels as realistic as it does. But when it comes to Western pop music, though, that isn’t the case.
Maybe its because western pop music was more popular in the west long before it became popular in the rest of the world. Maybe it was because western pop music was more popular in the western world than the rest of the world because western pop music has a different type of lyrics, or maybe western pop music was popular because western pop music had a very special meaning for westerners.
In the early days of western pop music, the lyrics of some of the songs were very much about the struggles of western folks who were still struggling with the western values of religion or family. These songs were not for the masses, so they werent meant to be heard by everyone. But because of the western music industry, western pop music became very popular in the western world and thus western pop music became more western.
Homophony, for the most part, is very much a Western music song. The lyrics are very much more western than they are, just that they are one of the lyrics about the struggles of western folks who are still struggling with the western values of religion or family. The lyrics are very much like the lyrics of “The Last Waltz,” which is the title of the song. It is the song that’s the most familiar to western fans and western media.
In fact, homophony is probably a lot more common in non-western music than people would realize. It’s one of those things that western music is more often used to describe than it is to describe western culture.
