Surely Bach would be accessible to all intelligent species!

Given that they are a spacefaring/time travelling race, I think their culture will be purely mathematical/science based. A 24/7 lab work kinda life. Thus, if they encounter our music, it will be just an oddity for them.

I think aliens created music to hypnotize us all.

I think they would find our music "schwifty"


Honestly, I can't imagine how would alien music sound to our ears, but we have so much diversity of genres and styles here that I don't think it would be too drastically different from anything we already have.

Even the variance within us humans is pretty amazing.

You can go to Scotland, some guy in a kilt, belting out a jig on bagpipes. Go off to India, there is a snake charmer playing an oboe looking thing to a snake. Now both instruments, timing, and tuning are totally different. But slap an air bladder on that thing in India, BAM! bagpipes! Standing behind the piper, twirling fuzzy clubs, is a beefy guy also in a kilt, thumping out da Bass. Go to Alaska; some little native dude is being tossed high up into the air while a crowd of elders beat out a tempo on a flat, circular seal skin drum. That is something somebody who never heard Alaska Native music before totally grooves on if they are a visiting Scotsman and piper! I know because I heard the story of that very thing happening. Different cultures, similar ideas, similar instruments, and a fundamental grasping and appreciation of what the other is doing.

Would an alien be so different? (Except the heavy metal abduction story of course! LOL)

I think Jimi Hendrix could be an alien. And if he wasn't he heard like somebody not of this earth!
