music: n. A common extracurricular interest of hackers (compare
science-fiction fandom,
oriental food; see also filk). Hackish folklore
has long claimed that musical and programming abilities are closely
related, and there has been at least one large-scale statistical study that
supports this. Hackers, as a rule, like music and often develop musical
appreciation in unusual and interesting directions. Folk music is very big
in hacker circles; so is electronic music, and the sort of elaborate
instrumental jazz/rock that used to be calledprogressiveand
isn't recorded much any more. The hacker's musical range tends to be wide;
many can listen with equal appreciation to (say) Talking Heads, Yes, Gentle
Giant, Pat Metheny, Scott Joplin, Tangerine Dream, Dream Theater, King
Sunny Ade, The Pretenders, Screaming Trees, or the Brandenburg Concerti.
It is also apparently true that hackerdom includes a much higher
concentration of talented amateur musicians than one would expect from a
similar-sized control group of mundane types.

Jubal was the inventor of musical instruments (Gen. 4:21). The
Hebrews were much given to the cultivation of music. Their whole
history and literature afford abundant evidence of this. After
the Deluge, the first mention of music is in the account of
Laban's interview with Jacob (Gen. 31:27). After their triumphal
passage of the Red Sea, Moses and the children of Israel sang
their song of deliverance (Ex. 15).

But the period of Samuel, David, and Solomon was the golden
age of Hebrew music, as it was of Hebrew poetry. Music was now
for the first time systematically cultivated. It was an
essential part of training in the schools of the prophets (1
Sam. 10:5; 19:19-24; 2 Kings 3:15; 1 Chr. 25:6). There now arose
also a class of professional singers (2 Sam. 19:35; Eccl. 2:8).
The temple, however, was the great school of music. In the
conducting of its services large bands of trained singers and
players on instruments were constantly employed (2 Sam. 6:5; 1
Chr. 15; 16; 23;5; 25:1-6).

In private life also music seems to have held an important
place among the Hebrews (Eccl. 2:8; Amos 6:4-6; Isa. 5:11, 12;
24:8, 9; Ps. 137; Jer. 48:33; Luke 15:25).
