Tone colors are formed by superpositions of partials, chords by superposition of different pitches. Durations are another parameter. Experiential dimensions correspond to the physical parameters.

Friedrich Nietzsche on Music - Dictionary of Arguments

Pfotenhauer IV 36
Individuation/Music/Philosophy/Nietzsche: Nietzsche speaks of a "mysterious primordial one" of the "World Harmony" and the "higher commonality" into which the one enters(1), who ecstatically forgets himself, who escapes the fate of the individual.
Pfotenhauer: "This thought of redemption in higher harmony is oriented towards music. Nietzsche himself speaks of a "profound metaphysics of music" (section 5, p. 42) in analogy to Schopenhauer.
The music in which the Dionysian state is in actual woe is the philosophical place of art, in which the process of becoming is shut down.
>Art/Nietzsche, >Schopenhauer.

Danto III 80
Music/NietzscheVsWagner/Wagner/Nietzsche/Danto: Wagner could not live up to the high artistic demands of "The Birth of the Tragedy"(1). Nietzsche saw himself as a composer, just as Wagner saw himself as a philosopher.
Danto III 81
Nietzsche has only heard a very small portion of Wagner's music, and if so, only passages from rehearsals.
Danto III 84
NietzscheVsWagner/NietzscheVsSchopenhauer: they deny life, they slander it, so they are my antipodes. (Nietzsche versus Wagner (1888), "Wir Antipoden", KGW VI. 3, p. 423.). Humanity owes a lot of evil to these rapturous drunkards.(2)
