The composition of music is interconnected with its arrangement. It is possible to write a piece of electronic music for an orchestra, but this music is most suitable for the small and complex form of chamber music. It is appropriate to emphasize the particularities of the synthesizer. Composing is the art of structuring sound and arranging the entirety of the frequencies of the universe.

Of course there are historical conventions determining methods for beautiful compositions, but they do not exclude the development of new sound systems in the future. Every rule which has been created in the course of the history of music from the counterpoint to atonal music is a trial which aims at organizing the limitless possibilities of determining frequencies and their proportions. Research in the realm of the development of the tonal system presupposes the mathematical, physical and electronical or electroacoustical creation of new scales and groups of sounds which can be arranged reasonably by the composer. These sounds can be abstract and they do not have to appear as so-called noise in reality.

The achievements of the historical music theory form the point of departure for the creation of new structures. Their appreciation is the core of the renewal of a new sonic art. Zahra M.M.A. Sadiq’s album “Gardens of the Nile” is based on polytonality and the reinterpretation of compositional techniques characterized by colourful harmonics, the extended tonality of the early moderns and contemporary music, the elaborate counterpoint and highly structured serial techniques.

The tonal system is still worth being developed. The cosmos is number and harmony and music is related to this model. Many harmonies and frequencies which can be found in space resemble the sounds of music used on earth. Sound systems avoid prime numbers. The ear and taste of the trained musician is the benchmark for the creation of the sound systems of the future.
