Usually. Yeah. Maybe.

Isn't "belial" a term used to reference evil or satan?

Depending on what your source is.

In some sources, it's another name for Satan.

In others, he's an entirely separate demon, usually one of Satan's/Lucifer's/Samael's lieutenants, though in a few more obscure occult sources he's considered part of a "circle of equals" or something like that, which includes Lucifer and several others.

I have a thing for Angel and Demon names.

Well. My muddled source is my highschool education...and it's been a few years since I was there. So I'm surprised I was even half-way on the mark with the origins of that.

And Raptors...o.o Yeah. I noticed the raptor fascination in the comics. I'm so going to have to watch Jurassic Park again. I was like...7 when it came out, and it gave me nightmares for weeks. Never did see it again, but now I feel compelled to.

That is a great idea. Of course there are so many ways to work numbers into music but there are also lots of great ways to work in exponential/logarithmic patterns in general.

Do you happen to know what e sounds like as a frequency ratio? *scribbles on notebook* Looks like it's an octave plus a fourth plus 31 cents. Hm. Not sure that would do much for ya. Redefining the octave as based on a frequency ratio of e instead of 2 always sounds like a better idea than it is (integer frequency ratios are consonant for a reason).

Well best of luck to ya anyhow.

No. Go download some cure CDs. Listen to them non-stop.

What if I'm not listening to the cure, but write bad poetry, dress in black, but not with too many ruffles. (Honestly, it's more of an efficiency thing... I'm so bad at color choice I just made it easy on myself).

Well best of luck to ya anyhow.


I'm thinking more of working it in with form (like Dufay--he wrote a motet based on the measurements of a dome. How cool is that?). I'm not THAT experimental. Although...mucking around with frequency ratios would be kind of cool. I could do it maybe with a bunch of synths? Hm. Things to think about.
