Bach, Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582 - YouTube

I love to listen to the music, and I understand the symmetry involved, but do not need any visualization. It even disturbs me. Also, the picture does not catch the harmonic relationships between the different tunes.

The fantasic thing about Bach's counterpoint compositions is that they represent a perfect dialogue between equally important voices. Not one voice is dominating the others, as is typical for the later classical compositions, but several voices are interwoven, each of them carrying its own message. The music represents the picture of a closed, harmonious system, where each element has its place.

Playing the fugues of Bach is still one of my favourite occupations. It liberates as much as any other form of meditation. It is not a cheap way to the liberty of mind, you need a grand piano to enjoy it.

This has nothing to do with markets. Markets are open, dynamic systems, and for me it has always a comical note, if people try to find symmetrical elements in the markets. Our brain is playing tricks on us, as we have successfully used symmetry in other fields to get rid of redundant information.

There is no square of nine, there are no harmonic ratios, there is no hidden geometry, there is no wave counting, there is no balance between ups and downs. The most funny pictures are those, where people draw circles on the chart that establish price time relationships. Those circles tell me something about the people who have drawn them, but nothing about the market.

That's a very lucid commentary on Bach... and an amusing one on asymmetry of markets relative to patterns in musical compositions.

I loved listening to Bach... until I discovered Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1 and have been addicted to it ever since. Not sure what you would say about it philosophically, but it's a beautiful piece of music... healing.

Everything truly beautiful liberates us, as it takes us beyond the limitations of the personal ego.

The piece by Satie is a favourite of my wife. It does not appeal to me that much, but then I believe that everybody interprets music in a different way. Music is encrypted emotions, and there is no universal key available to decrypt it. Finally everybody uses an individual key
