Hi Joe,

The Tymoczko is an excellent book, but it's really heavy on compositional theory and maybe something to read later

I would suggest:
Physics and Music: The Science of Musical Sound by Harvey E. White and Donald H. White -- good intro to basic materials
Tone by Siegmund Levarie
Beyond Measure by Jay Kappraff
Connections by Jay Kappraff
Basic Atonal Theory by John Rahn
A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe by Michael Schneider

The first two are basic must-haves. The Kappraff books are not about markets per se and range farther afield but have excellent discussions of musical/fibonacci derivations plus an extended analysis of the Brunes star and other interesting stuff. No one seems to know about them. The Rahn presents key concepts in a more mathematical and formal way, i.e. set class, interval class, multiplicative transforms. Believe it or not, that's very useful. Finally, lots of useful stuff in the Schneider book.

Good reading!

Todd

Todd,

When I was getting my Classics major, they let us study either Latin or Greek, so there was actually a 50-50 chance that I'd be able to read that reply instead of needing to get Google involved... :lol:

Hi Todd,


Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll shelve the Tymoczko book for now (should get it today) and go with the others you recommended as a primer. Right now I’m up to my eyes re-building corrupt files in another program but when I get some time I’ll try and do a post on a modulation technique I developed years ago. It’s not something that can be done in W59 and try not to post anything that can’t. However I did cover it on the old board and believe it germane to the conversation.


Thanks again,
Joe


PS I used Google … a half year of high school Latin doesn’t take you very far … even if you can remember it. ;-)

To All,

Did the conversation go to stealth mode? Quite the cliffhanger! I'm looking to learn more.
