• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

BWV847 measures 1-9 Fuga a 3 voci.svg

"The modern sound system includes a multitude of speakers to provide the perfectly balanced soundscape: the center channel, left and right front speakers, a-bit-more-to-the-left and a-bit-more-to-the-right speakers, surround speakers, surrounding-surround speakers, AND VARIOUS OVERKILL TO ENSURE EVENTUAL DEAFNESS SPEAKERS!!!

And the all-important... subwoofer."

This supercategory is about all sounds in creative works — songs, lyrics, score, sound effects, and even dialogue.

Note that under the broadest definition, "music" is simply "the arrangement of sound". Since creative works are edited, this would mean that every noise was music. That's why we're going to use a slightly stricter definition for organizational purposes, and separate artistic works with rhythm, pitch and dynamics (i.e. songs) as Music, the spoken word as Dialogue, and other noises as Sound FX.

All about songs, lyrics, music, and sounds, except for spoken words outside of songs.

A special note should be made for Rhythm Games, games where you play with the music.
