Research findings says, “Only when combined do these tones become the complex sound we call 'jazz' or 'classical music.'” Imperatively (2014), “music is just one example of a hierarchical system, where patterns are nested within larger patterns—similar to the way characters form words, which form sentences, then chapters and eventually a novel”(in quoted text)..

Buehler states, “Composers have exploited the concept of hierarchies for thousands of years, perhaps unknowingly, but only recently have these systems been understood mathematically.” “This math shows that the principles of musical composition are shared by many seemingly diverse hierarchical systems, suggesting many exciting avenues to explore”(Buehler,2014).
