...C. Catherine Losada This article examines the transfer between precompositional material and score in Pierre Boulez’s Domaines . It demonstrates how this stage of the compositional process and the gestural content of the work derive from and are linked to Boulez’s innovative serial and derivational...

..., a metric cube connects two meters if their ordered factor representations differ by only one factor. Metric cubes, and metric operations that act on the contents of a cube, reveal patterns of metric structure in three works by Brahms: the first movement of the Third Symphony op. 90, the third movement...

... of this article examines the Two Rhapsodies, op. 79. The unusual harmonic structure of the G-minor rhapsody is read in light of 1-cycles present within the opening tiered polyphony. In the B-minor rhapsody, the content of three concurrent cycles at the opening—a 4-cycle, 1-cycle, and 5/7-cycle—is respectively...

... in Guillaume de Machaut's nineteen three-voice motets. Building initially upon Sarah Fuller's work, the proposed schema introduces a more nuanced approach to categorizing the intervallic content of consonant and dissonant sonorities. Moreover, by calling attention to the outer voices of certain sonority types...

...Drew Nobile In this article, I advocate for a syntactical definition of harmonic function in rock music such that function is acquired not by a chord's scale-degree content but by its role in the context of a song's form. In rock songs, the syntactical role of dominant, for example, is often played...

...Jason Yust The discrete Fourier transform on pitch-class sets, proposed by David Lewin and advanced by Ian Quinn, may provide a new lease on life for Allen Forte's idea of a general theory of harmony for the twentieth century based on the intervallic content of pitch-class collections. This article...
