Basic characteristics of music therefore carried the sense of morality in everyday life as it was the spoken word. This was because the concept of music as a language meant that it was influential over human thinking as well. What this mean for the musician in the ancient Greece time was that they had to adhere to certain doctrine of ethos. The doctrine of ethics is the single most profound contrition on the ethics of music from that era. The artist was expected to be aware of the moral power of music and was to exercise his rights such that it led listeners into ethical paths. The Ethos therefore had a dual purpose in its understanding. The primary understanding was of the morality and the second was that of ethics. These premises of the doctrine of ethos were grounded in the fact that music affects people differently. This led to the construction of different forms of music that supported the common purpose goals of ethics and morality, although the construction, the context and renditions differed. For instance David Eaton represents the Apollonian music which had much mythological characteristics in it. This music was considered classic and had the characteristics to calm a person. It uplifted their good qualities and would also give them tranquility in thinking. On the other hand, Dionysian music was seen to be representing romance and excitement. Where the Apollonian aimed to calm, the Dionysian aimed to excite, however based on context each of these music was constructed with moral and ethical parameters.
