 What Is Music? Alaska Science Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Music in nearly all musical cultures consists of organized, structured, rhythmic successions and superpositions of tones, selected from a very limited set of discrete pitches (the scales).
The spatial arrangement of the vibration pattern along the basilar membrane leads to the sensation of subjective pitch; the relative intensities of the resonance regions caused by the overtones lead to the sensation of timbre.
Recent advances in research on the perception of musical tones have led to new theories in musicology to explain tonal consonance and dissonance, harmony, tonal dominance, the sense of tonal return, and many practical aspects ranging from instrument performance techniques to music hall acoustics.

 Built Like Alaska: Autumnland - PopMatters Music Review
For this, their sophomore effort, Built Like Alaska should garner much well-deserved attention -- this is the kind of pleasant indie surprise that will strike a chord with many.
Autumnland is all over the map, a diverse and grand exploration of moods and moments, nostalgia tinged with world-weariness and wry smiles, merging folk sensibility with flavors of baroque pop and a heavy dollop of casual independent rock.
These songs are an eclectic mix of mostly sad thoughts, infused with small town ennui and presented in a haunting and hypnotic manner.
