Pan for the People
The Steel Pan is both a unique discovery and a ground breaking invention in its relationship to physics of Metal and Music. Of all musical instruments in the world of music and since, 6th century BC when Pythagoras the "Greek Father of Mathematics", made popular and re-established the cycle of fifths in musical theory; the Steel Pan is the only musical instrument comfigured to follow this systematic sequence of intervals. In music theory, the circle of fifths (or circle of fourths) is a visual representation of the relationships among the 12 tones of the chromatic scale, their corresponding key signatures, and the associated major and minor keys. More specifically, it is a geometrical representation of relationships among the 12 pitch classes of the chromatic scale use on the Soprano steelpan.
Mr Anthony Williams is the first person to use the theory in a practical manner as he developed the "Spider-web Pan" in Trinidad. Just. because this extraordinary vision and creativity, Mr Williams deserves to be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize in Physics.
After the invention of Steel Pans the World was presented with a New Symphony and Ochestra in music. The Steelpan inventions created a new frontier for musical instrumentation for the 20th century and beyond. This is only one of the many different reasons, why so many people worldwide are drawn to this unique idophone instrument. ©
Only Musical Instrument configured in the cycle of 4ths and 5ths in history
Tobago is the Mecca of the Steelpan
I pay tribute to the most unique musical instrument invented, since the
6 century BC. where Greek history gives credit to Pythagoras for calculating intervals in musical tones and notes.
Our Steelpan Inventors and Innovators are first in over 2000 years to follow the Pythagorean usingt of intervals of the cycle of 4th & 5ths,
The basic idea of using a flat surface of a metal drum to experiment, therefore, creating a unique musical instrument this lead to a new ground breaking descovery of a new symphonic and orchestra tonal quality.
An Act of Parliament is needed.
An open letter to the Honourable Prime Minister and Minister of Arts and Culture. Please foward an Official Bill; an Act of Parliament declaring the Steelpan Our National Emblem and musical instrument.
In 1962 the government did not declare the Steel Pan our National Instrument, subsequently, the Goverment must pass an Act of Parlimentto officially declaring Steel Pan, an Emblem and along with stature of the National Instrument. The Steel Pan Instrument must be recognize for it level of attainment in the modern world. The response of our creativity,cultural freedom and oppression, therefore, is as revelant as a symbol of Freedom in T&T as is the Statue of Liberty to the USA.
