The video, titled "Por qué Mozart no usaba el Si bemol," explores the mystery of why Mozart rarely used the B-flat minor key in his compositions. Various theories are presented, including one that Mozart avoided using the key because of emotional associations or because the instruments of the time did not have a reliable B-flat key. The video also touches on topics such as the significance of B flat 3 in Mozart's music, the possibility that Mozart was part of a group of composers who used the name "Mozart" as a collective pseudonym, and the idea that Mozart's decision not to use B-flat 3 may have been influenced by his association with the Freemasons. Ultimately, the video is revealed to be a mockumentary meant to spark discussion about the importance of being critical of information and understanding the depth of musical history and artistic choices.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, the video introduces the mystery of why Mozart never used the B-flat minor key in his compositions. Although he used flats in other keys, B-flat minor was almost always written without the flat. The video features interviews with two music experts who discuss the various theories surrounding this mystery. One theory suggests that Mozart may have broken his B-flat minor key when he was younger, causing him to avoid using it altogether. However, there is no evidence to support this claim. Another theory is that Mozart believed the key was associated with negative emotions, such as sadness or despair, and therefore avoided using it. The experts point out that this is also unlikely, as Mozart used other minor keys with similar emotional connotations. Ultimately, the reason behind Mozart's avoidance of the B-flat minor key remains unknown.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, the video explores why Mozart did not use the note B flat throughout his compositions. One theory is that Mozart may have been aware of the note's frequency and chosen not to use it, but this is refuted by the fact that precise measurement of frequency did not exist during Mozart's time. Another theory suggests that Mozart did not use the note due to its historical association with death, but this is dismissed as well. The most widely accepted theory is that Mozart did not use B flat as often because the instruments he played on did not have a reliable B flat key. The video also touches on the idea that Mozart's signature musical motif may have served as a replacement for a traditional signature, like Bach's use of a flattened B note in his compositions.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the transcript discusses the significance of Mozart's use of B flat 3 in his compositions and how it is related to his name "Amadeus." The frequency of B flat 3 being 242 hertz was discovered by Robert Gok, who invented a machine with gears that produced different sounds depending on the number of teeth. It is said that Mozart knew about this frequency and deliberately used it in his music. The transcript also talks about a theory that suggests Mozart was not the sole author of all his works, as it seems unlikely that he could have produced over 600 works in his short life. Finally, the transcript mentions Alice Herz's thesis that Mozart was closer to the modern pop industry than the music of the 18th century.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the theory is presented that Mozart was actually part of a group of composers who used the name "Mozart" as a collective pseudonym. This group was made up of people who had dangerous democratic ideals and communicated with the Austrian imperial order. Anton Balthazar, a famous piano maker, was the promoter of this group, and he signed his opera works under the name of "Moxart." Many believe that this pseudonym was adopted due to the historical relevance of the name and its association with musical composition. Mozart's father, Leopold, worked for the count who managed Balthazar, and Leopold was a musician and chamberlain. Mozart published works under his own name but had serious problems without his father's patronage. His requiem was commissioned by an aristocrat, and it was the composer Hart who later became known as the "club Moxart."
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the video discusses the idea that Mozart's decision not to use the B flat note in his compositions may have been influenced by his association with the Freemasons. The Freemasons were a group of intellectuals who provided Mozart with high-quality musical works, and his involvement with them may have led him to create music that incorporates their symbolic codes. The video also explores the idea that Mozart's individualistic approach to composition may have conflicted with the concept of the community as the driving force for change. However, it is acknowledged that Mozart's iconic status as a lone genius has been challenged in modern times, and his association with the Freemasons may have contributed to this myth.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, Carmen Alvarado from the eco-group explains why she and several artists have stopped using B flat 3 in their music. Alvarado mentions that there is a theory that listening to Mozart can make people smarter, but this is a pseudoscientific theory that has been widely debunked. Moreover, the technique used to reduce B flat 3 in music recordings is not the same thing as the "Mozart effect." The technique is used to remove a certain frequency from the sound, which is not something Mozart could have done in his compositions. Finally, Alvarado touches on the need for research to be conducted properly and for claims to be supported by evidence before they are taken seriously.
  • 00:30:00 In this section, the speaker discusses how some modern musicians, from pop to reggaeton, are starting to take Mozart's decision not to use B-flat 3 seriously and are intentionally leaving it out of their own compositions. While the speaker acknowledges that the impact of this may not be fully understood, he notes that even Mozart's contemporaries were aware of his unique style and respected him for it. He concludes that the importance of studying Mozart's choices is not necessarily about blindly following them, but rather about understanding and appreciating the depth of musical history and the artistry that goes into composition.
  • 00:35:00 In this section, the bot explains that the video is a mockumentary inspired by two different works. The creator uses this to explore the idea that no modern pop artists, including Ozuna, use the B flat note because Mozart never did. The creator also lists the true and false elements of the video and explains that the "Mozart was a group of people" theory is based on the Shakespeare conspiracy theory, where some people are said to have written Shakespeare's works. Some parts of the documentary, such as Mozart being a mason, are entirely fabricated.
  • 00:40:00 In this section, the speaker discusses why he created a video with false information about Mozart not using the note B-flat. He explains that he did it for four reasons, including wanting to explore how people talk about complex topics, like music theory, and to make a parody of himself. Additionally, he made the video as a gift for musicians to use and share with others as a fun and engaging way to talk about music. Although the information in the video is not true, the speaker emphasizes the importance of being critical and not believing everything one hears or reads.
  • 00:45:00 In this section, the speaker expresses gratitude towards the individuals who helped him in the project and mentions that he has about three hours of recorded material. He also invites viewers to watch his other videos on Mozart and assures them that they can trust his name. The speaker mentions that the video had been kept secret for almost a year, and he hopes that he has not disappointed viewers.
