Define 'working' :P

It's sort of on hold, since I have a bunch of other writing projects I've been working on, but I tinker with it sometimes when I'm bored and too lazy to work on stuff I'm supposed to be working on. :rofl:

It's a good idea, so keep tinkering and see what happens. ;)

The hills are alive...with the sound of music...Interesting idea, Bethany. Here's a couple thoughts: Because this world is made with sound, you could use certain pitches to shatter ear drums. Would the deaf be like eternally cursed people?

"Well...that isn't so bad."
"No. No, it isn't."

A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break the bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. This day we fight! Stand, men of the West!...For Frodo.

Hmm...not sure. Never quite thought about that... Perhaps, if someone becomes deaf they can see the sounds instead of hear them?

But yeah, I guess that would be considered quite the curse in a world like this... :P * tipoes away, pondering *

Huh, it would be awfully hard to stalk someone. I mean, imagine walking along and hearing from the ground (in a singsong manner) "Someone's stalking you, someone's stalking you..." :D

It sounds like an amazing idea! I have noticed in my world that there is a distinctive lack of music...

Be careful of your thoughts; guard your mind, for your thoughts become words. Be guarded when you speak, for your words turn into action. Watch what you do, for your actions will become habits. Be wary of your habits, for they become your character. Pray over your character; strive to mold it to the image of Christ, because your character will shape your destiny.

Ideas can germinate from the smallest seeds. Collect those seeds, and let them grow in the back of your mind. You may be surprised by what finally blooms.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you. Instead, He’s opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Bethy, when/if you'll work more on this world, a good story to read would be John Steinbeck's The Pearl (it's more of a novella, actually). It's rather depressing, but there are songs for everything, as sort of a motif/symbol throughout the story. They aren't necessarily literal/physical, as in your world, but it'd be good reference to see how Steinbeck does it.

I was shocked when I stumbled upon this thread, because I've been toying with a similar idea: a world in which music is heavily involved. I haven't fleshed out many details yet, but I really like some of the ideas and suggestions I saw posted here. Is this thread dead? Are any of the ideas up for grabs, so to speak? 'Cause I'd seriously consider using some of them but I don't want to get in trouble. Although if what I use is different enough I suppose it wouldn't be considered plagiarism.

I recommend the book Auralia's Colors, because in it there's a song that's sung traditionally every morning, and one for the evening too.
Also, in the beginning of the Silmarrilion, it talks about the beginning of the world coming about through a song that God (called something else in it) was constantly making more and more beautiful, and all the angels had a part in it. But then it was made twisted by the guy who is like Lucifer, but God still made it turn out more beautiful in the end because of it.
Music has frequency with light and dark, sadness and happiness, and different dimensions to it. I think it has the ability to take us to different places.
