Fifth EssenceFor us, the art of selecting and mixing music to produce a final piece of work that is more than the sum of it's parts, is demonstrated through the binding force of our Fifth Essence guise...

"The essential principle or the most subtle extract of a body that can be procured.

The luminous fifth element, invisible to ordinary sight, which was seen as binding together in union or pact the other four elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

The ancient Greeks said that the four elements or forms was the only places where matter could exist. The Pythagoreans added then a fifth, the quintessence, ether, more subtle and pure than fire and possessed of an orbicular motion, which flew upwards at creation and formed the basis of the stars..."

"It is the highest element after fire, air, water, and earth, and the most pure essential constituent that is latent in all things.

The fifth essence is the rarest virtue, fundament nature and true substance"

"The heavenly bodies move eternally in circles. But it is the nature of earth and water to move down, and of air and fire to move up. Therefore the eternally circling heavenly bodies are not composed of earth, air, fire and water, but a fifth essence."

Francis Bacon 1620

"The fifth classical element is known by various names...Aether (Greek αἰθήρ), Idea (Greek ίδέα), quintessence, or ίερόν, (Greek hieron "a divine thing")...

Plato and Aristotle referred to Aether as "Idea", and in this sense, it may be regarded as that which exists outside the material world...

quintessence (quinta essentia) is a hypothetical form of dark energy postulated as an explanation of observations of an accelerating universe

"...according to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable" Albert Einstein

The Theremin, a musical instrument that exists in the fifth state-of-matter is often referred to as an aetherphone
