JB's Musical Musings

Morse Code is Music

JB’s Musings:  My number one favourite thing about music is that it CONNECTS PEOPLE – and isn’t that what we all want for ourselves and for those we care about – to feel connected.  Not only connected to others but also to that feeling that we are apart of something bigger.  Each of us has a part to PLAY in the music we call life.

Morse code was created as a way to connect with others and communicate with those far away.  It is therefore an interesting piece of trivia to note that the famous ascending Nokia phone ringtone is a musical version of the bops and beeps of Morse Code.  The code they used….well….it is Nokia’s slogan…Connecting People. Brilliant.
