Timbre was covered in Part V (a co-production with Greg Whitman.) You're right about all the things that could be said--these diaries are long but there's a lot I leave out; my idea is that I'll take one track and in the comments others can follow others--widen the range, head in different directions, that kind of thing.
With videos if possible, so that there are sounds to match words (or just sounds!)
I'm planning to do twelve diaries--next up I'm not sure, maybe Ornament, or Form & Function; there's also Major/Minor--
But yeah, I don't want it to all become too technical--more music, less words about music, but I'm also interested in the mechanics of sound production--and have become more so through writing the diaries. Here's a find I enjoyed but didn't put in the diary--I'm sure you know all this already, so this is just an excuse to post it!
The mythical story of how Pythagoras worked out that sounds came in ratios:
If you find any videos of pieces played on well-tempered instruments, esp. two different keys on the same instrument--please post them; it would be great to hear the difference (answering the question: "Why do composers talk of the 'mood' of a key?" My very limited experience with a harpsichord says that E Major is the brightest--)...it would be great to have some video examples to listen to.
