This symmetry is important to understand musical counterpoint. What is counterpoint? In short, this is the art of composing music with a number of different voices. When one considers the intervals between (simultaneous) notes of different voices, coun- 54 5 Mental Reality Fig.

The top image, representation of a sinusoidal signal, is deformed accordingly to the shape of the middle image, modifying its envelope and giving the bottom image. Wavelets are used to solve the signal-cutting problem. A wavelet is different from zero in a finite range. Wavelets are used in several fields, including seismography and heart-beat monitoring in electrocardiograms, ECG.
