It is interesting to note in the convergence of the Arabic and Greek thought the same model for aural transmission and a similar physiological representation for the reception of music. Theologian al-Ghazzali in the twelfth century writes: "There is no way to the extracting of their [hearts'] hidden things save by ... " 7 A revealing variable in antiquity's discourse on acoustics is the source of the mechanism which initiates the perceptual process. The definition of natural science in antiquity differs considerably from the modern conception of scientific inquiry.
Part of Gurney's aesthetic project then becomes the investigation of a sonic analogue for visual beauty which is, not surprisingly, music. The scientific discourse of the nineteenth century, in fact, casts into relief the ideological subtext driving acoustical investigation: the value of objectivity over subjectivity.

Sometimes all copies of the full score have been lost or destroyed, and the music for a film will exist only in parts. Such is the case with Edmund Meisel's score for The Battleship Potemkin (1925). Although a complete version has not been found, orchestral parts were discovered, and from these a full score could be reconstructed. 18 The piano conductor part, also known as the conductor part, and sometimes the short score, is yet another version of a film score. This term refers to a reduced version of the full score, often used for conducting the recording session.
