It has a name, it's the circle of fifths. What else do you want to name it?

comment Lorem Ipsum in music
Yes, that is the point. And I think that's what the thread is really about. What is music? Is there a strict dividing line between random noise and Mozart? Ever read about Xenakis' compositional technique (better, ever heard Xenakis?). It's very interesting in the sense that Xenakis starts from randomness and shapes it into music. But when is his creation music? Is John Cage's 4'33" music? I think there's also another interpretation we can give to "contentless" which would be, made with no intent. In that sense, a random generator is the best answer I can think off.

They're just tuning their instruments. But it's a nice idea.

comment Lorem Ipsum in music
One could have a computer program generate 1/f noise and then let it harmonize it according to classical harmony rules, that would be random enough and still not so random that it doesn't sound like music.

If the sound is just pure noise, wouldn't that qualify as contentless?

comment What scale is used in the Morrowind theme?
What do you mean range? It's called a scale. And it's a c minor scale with raised seventh, also called the harmonic minor scale.

comment How do I finger the interleaved 3rds in Goldberg 23?
Possible, OP still has to produce the full score then. I think the problem is that OP is just as confused as we are.

Here's a video that shows it's perfectly possible. I think the passage ash refers to is played around 1:12.
