Modern music is therefore divided. One of the first signs of this division is the expulsion of music from language, as if tones and words were separate entities vying for power.

With its supernatural aura demystified as natural and its inaudible, invisible essences dismissed as non-existent, modern music became an autonomous object open to the manipulations of instrumental reason. Significantly it was Vincenzo Galilei, father of Galileo, the astronomer who disenchanted the universe,24 who was among the first to cut the ancient monochord in a series of experiments conducted in the 1580s,25 by subjecting instrumental sound to the instrumental reason of empirical science.

Thus instrumental music no longer means anything in the modern era of Christ, the Word made flesh, because the system of resemblances no longer stands as truth.
