Have you ever wondered who was behind the sound of music as we know it today? Well.. Zhu Zaiyu is the Musicologist who created the Equal Temperament in music and the pleasing tonal system that composers and musicians have used for five centuries. I hope you will share in my interest in the equal temperament that underlies all music and let www.zzMusicSage.com be an informative resource for learning. For now the website is a showcase for my PowerPoint presentation, 37 slides of information ... the next step is to release a Book I am working on, so please stay tuned!
Zhu Zaiyu, who created the tuning system that allowed composers and song writers to compose such wonderful music, would not have realized know how the seeds of Equal Temperament he sowed over 400 years ago would reap such amazing crops in music, still today. What most people do not realize is that Bach, Beethoven, or Mozart would not have been able to compose such perpetual music without the discovery of Equal Temperament by a Chinese prince. To put it simply, without the genius of Zhu Zaiyu, music as we know it today would not exist.
