No conspiracy here, ATS; just something interestiing. In a painting named "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by an Artist named Hieronymus Bosch, a music student has found musical notes painted on someone's butt. I know that early artists painted weird things on the bottom layers of their paintings, there's even the well politicized UFO presence in some paintings and ancient Artist depictions. Anyway, just found this interesting.

What say you, ATS?

Cool find! It's a pretty random melody, I have to say, not something I'd hope to hear from the painting, but hey, consider where the artist put the notes...


peace,
AB

What I find more amazing than anything is how old that style of musical notation actually is. I'm not much of a history person so stuff like this amazes me. That people from 500 years ago could actually write sheet music that we can play today is amazing imo. It makes me wonder what other amazing things are hidden in ancient art works...

People used to travel afar to view famous paintings. They would stand and stare for hours, discussing and arguing this or that hidden nuance and meaning. Books were written, societies formed.

All for a single frame…

(shudder)

I believe this to be a piece of music called "The brown note".

Very interesting how that college student was able to "crack" the musical code.

I'm surprised know one has ever thought to transpose this "Butt Song" before.
Result: Butt Song tats on butts.
Finder also failed to use intended instrument for this score. The Butt.

Bosch was a trip. If you enjoy this kind of art Dave Patchett is someone who I always found interesting and comparable.

One of my favorites.

Now, that's a proclamation I can really get "behind."

Are you prepared to "back" up that statement?

Did they intend for this song to be played on horns? French horns or Tubas perhaps?

That is very cool! s&f for you!

As a musician my self I really like these kinds of stories, It reminds me of a documentry I once watched about musical scores were found hidden with FreeMason architecture over in Scotland or England. Great Find my friend, Thanks for presenting it to us!

What is even more insane is how music is inherently based in math... maybe it was the combination to his luggage, painted there so he could remember it? OR... maybe it is the math that explains the universe, just waiting to come out from where the sun don't shine... fascinating.
