question

What does it really mean "Sine"?

First of all I'm not an english-speaker, that's why I'm asking this kind of question.

I've searched all over the internet but I can't get a definition that fully satisfies me. :awkney: and without knowing what it means I can't understand the phrase "Sine from above". Does it mean "sign", "syne", "the trigonometric function that is equal to the ratio of the side opposite a given angle (in a right-angled triangle) to the hypotenuse"? :huh:

help :huntyga:

It’s originally a mathematic term, but the way Gaga uses it has to do with music. It’s a waveform.

Music Term: Sine wave

The waveform that would be obtained from a vibrating source that was vibrating at just one frequency, for a pure tone.

That’s why that wavy line inside a circle is evident throughout all of her Chromatica promo, it’s a sine!

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Gaga explained that Chromatica’s imagery is rooted in sound, healing, and color:

The symbol for Chromatica has a sine wave in it, which is the mathematical symbol for sound, and it’s from what all sound is made from, and, for me, sound is what healed me in my life period, and it healed me again making this record, and that is really what Chromatica is all about. It’s about healing and it’s about bravery as well and it’s really like, when we talk about love I think it’s so important to include the fact that it requires a ton of bravery to love someone.

basically she looked up to the sky and saw nothing but then she heard a sine or sound and it healed her

 

sine like sine wave which is what music looks like (sound is a wave)

My pre-calc teacher was very hype to learn about the existence of this song

Someone gave me a very detailed answer when I asked the same question in the Chromatica thread, I can search for it ! :flower:

I knew mathematically what Sine meant, but learning about how it is used for sound and in the album really puts another perspective on the album. Chromatica definitely has one the best concepts for an album.

STAN: Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Madonna, Britney Spears, and Froy Gutierrez.

i think she explained the definition of sine as well as the song on spotify, if you swipe down on the song, it says: “sine is a function that expresses sound”

you can find more info about it on the spotify version of the album, each track goes through thorough detail of it!:firega:

Quoting @ICouldntThinkOfOne

Its a mathematical function that appears as a wave on a graph chart. it can be a single frequency sound. 

In the context of Sine from Above, its used in place of the word 'Sign', as in a visual representation, referring to an act of divine intervention; a sign from above. 

In the Zane Lowe interview, she spoke about how she pushed through trauma and recovery and the music saved her.

She also referenced a theory that our existence in the universe (or some people could argue, God), started as a single Universal sound, and then the sound split into two, and from the chain reaction started that lead to where we are now. Before it, there was nothing else.

So, in the song, Gaga at her lowest, had a moment of awakening when she discovered her passion for this kind of music; like a divine intervention, and it started a healing process, one that lead to love and recovery.

I hope that explains it.
