Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Universal Music Theory by German Margon is an entertaining book for all readers, especially music lovers, that will enhance their awareness about what music is and how and in what way it exists in the universe. The book updates musical ideas and readers can get objective answers and inspiration required for their daily practice. The author discusses how harmony should provide solution to the conflict between consonant and dissonant sounds. Through the book, readers discover the journey to a new direction where music is not based on tonal and atonal systems, but on a universal model.

The information shared about music is unique and will help readers look at music with a different perspective. It delves into music and its principles and also throws light on the three agents of music; the composer, interpreter, and listener. The creation, realization, and perception into the ideological movement that defines music as a universal idea is also discussed by the author. There is a lot of information about music and it is a must-read for all those who love music and want to know more about music and its techniques. On the whole, readers get to know about the Universal Theory of Music, the three laws - consonance, assonance, and dissonance - and music terminology. The art of music is explored differently by the author and readers also get to look at music from a unique perspective that will help them recognize all types of music as equal.
