Among the various claims by early Chinese philosophers to hear someone’s de 德 or virtue through their music, the most astonishing statement may be found in the Yue Ji 樂記 (Book of Music): “Only Music cannot be faked” (wei yue bu keyi wei wei 唯樂不可以為偽). While this classic Ru 儒 (Confucian) musical treatise on the development of human excellence in accordance with music is wide-ranging, the aim of this essay is narrow, in that it seeks to interpret this single sentence of the text by way of an explanation of the reciprocal patterning between authentic emotions (qing 情), character, and sound described by the Yue Ji.
