Summary:
Music is a complicated interplay of many different elements, including the imagination of the composer, the skill of the instrument maker, and the talent of the musician. Delving further, we ask what constitutes musical meaning and the process by which it is communicated--is it purely abstract or is there a more concrete answer?
