    I encourage you to learn about John Cage an "experimental" composer, especially his composition 4'33" (4 minutes, 33 seconds). I agree with him, in that, music is nearly undefinable. There is sound all around us, and music is just a certain perception of sound. "Noise" is music to some; "music" is definitely noise to others. Recommended goodstuffs: John Cage on TV creating noise/music/sounds - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSulycqZH-U 4'33" on Wikipidia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4%E2%80%B233%E2%80%B3

    "I consider music the production of sound, and, since in the piece that you will hear I produce sound, I would call it music."

    Music can be defined differently from person to person. Just as you've already seen here. There's a variety of ways of classifying music. Some musix is polyphonic, homophonic, or even monophonic. Tones can be produced with pure harmonics or strong muddy overtones. Try playing a diminished chord with a flat 5th inverted on its 7th. Sounds good? Perhaps it sounds good with some context. Sounds are jusr vibrations. Some sounds vibrate slow and some fast. These vibrations are measured by a frequency. Although most sounds are not pure. They are formed by low and high sounds mixed together. Think of guitar amps, the square sound on your synth, or the loud bangs from drums. All these sounds are used in "music". What constitues music from here is up to you. Are sounds themselves music or must they be orchestrated in a strict fashion? Noise such as white noise is literally random noise. It can be very useful in programming electronic sounds however. If you're unsure yourself about what music is then ask yourself the objective of music. For me it is to stimulate the senses. It should be known that popular instruments such as the guitar are man made. Everything built on the foundation of humankind is only theoretical. Chords only exist because we demand them. Noise? It's no different in nature than any other sound. Music is just sound. Noise. Birds. Cars. Talking. The ocean. Whatever stimulates.
