I had thought I had made my specific questions about this topic very clear.westsea wrote:ragamala,
What is the answer you are seeking?
Are you wanting to know, in exact Hz, what the ascending and descending
frequencies are, for a particular raag?
My examples of spectrum analysis were not intended to widen the shifting sa debate to include scientific theory. Rather, they were just offering a different way of thinking about the same debate... a visual view.
I think it's all one topic.
You keep bringing things back to Ashish Sankrityayan and his discussions (which are very
good, thank you for reminding us of those articles).
Have you considered contacting him and asking?
I think that's the only way any of us are really going to get this. Go directly to someone
who knows; be able to ask questions and listen to the verbal and musical answers.
Oh, and spend years getting to the point where it actually becomes knowable,
let alone doable.
I thank Bahauddin for stretching the limits of our thinking.
I surely don'#t have to repeat those, this would only be a regurgitation of my last post, to anyone who has read through this topic and assimilated the info that was presented and discussed in the last.
If you revisit the last you will find Ashish contributed. We do not need to contact him again - the reaction is now against the new input from this topic's contributors.
I don't give a fart about real frequencies. If you think this is important you have a poor perception of my attitude and understanding. Perhaps I am not expressing my point well. Perhaps sometimes I just have to accept I'm banging my head against a brick wall.
The whole point of the discussions that have taken place is that we have different explanations given BY dhrupad exponents, people trained and practising, and that none of the explanations have been complete enough to satisfy our curious and sometimes simple minds.
