"Western music, since the time of Bach, moved to a tempered set of intervals that divided the octave into twelve equal subdivisions. Prior to this, European musicians used an uneven set of intervals, as did other cultures around the world, which have their own irregular, organic divisions of the octave. The Western ear, trained and conditioned by tempered intervals, came to perceive other music as inferior or out of tune. Only in recent years, with the rapid surge of world music, have ethnic sounds, non-Western musical intervals, variable instrument tunings, and diverse musical scales “enlarged” the Western ear. The power of cultivating a larger ear has never been more necessary than it is now; it will result in a proportionately larger heart, facilitating an authentic acceptance of other cultures and their vibrations." (emphasis added)

You ever hear any Japanese noise bands? I'd like to meet one of those Pennsylvania Dutch folks who can jam out to some circa '87 Boredoms, that's gotta be the biggest ear and heart ever!
