WHERE WE ARE FROM
Ionic stands for fundamental. For the foundations of thought, geometry and music. Ancient Ionian philosophers advanced geometry and mathematics, inspired by the shapes they saw in nature. From the Sphinx of Naxos to the United States Capitol, civilization rests on the spiral volutes of Ionic columns.
The resemblance to the ammonite shells found in the Ionian Sea seems less than accidental. It is no wonder then, that the major musical scale defining the western understanding of music is also called the Ionic mode. All the dots connect.
