The world’s ugliest music | Scott Rickard | TEDxMIA

So what makes a piece of music beautiful? Well, most musicologists would argue that repetition is a key aspect of beauty, the idea that we take a melody, a motif, a musical idea, we repeat it, we set up the expectation for repetition, and then we either realize it or we break the repetition.
