Music as a Chariot Post Publication Research

Welcome to a general area of my website devoted to research I have uncovered since the publication of my book. I've organized the research according to the general chapter to which it relates, and have included an area for more general discussion. The good news, is that I have not really found any new research over the years that would contradict the book's essential thesis, that theatre is a type of music governed by the four equations:

Music = Time Manipulated

Song = Music + Idea

Theatre = Song + Mimesis

Nevertheless, the march of discovery goes on, and these pages are filled with fascinating new research that helps to more fully uncover the mysteries of our attraction to music and theatre. Enjoy!
