...Philip Stoecker In this article I investigate aligned cycles. First identified by Alban Berg in a letter to Arnold Schoenberg and later discussed by George Perle and David Headlam, an aligned cycle is when two (or more) interval cycles unfold in the same direction in a note-against-note alignment...

Starting with Edward Gollin's recent generalization of Moritz Hauptmann's key representations as “multiaggregate cycles”—which he also uncovers on the surface of and in the relations between harmonies in Bartók's music—the article briefly reconsiders Hauptmann's theories and depictions...

..., harmonic functions, or pitch centricity. The Dasian space is a closed, nonoctave repeating scalar cycle, where each element is identified by a unique coordination of pitch class and modal quality. The dual description of each element enables both the specification of location in a given cycle...

... for the analysis of this repertoire. To this end, an alternative to standard theories of genre is advanced, one that draws on actor-network theory to destabilize categories too often conceived as fixed, solid, and binding. This revised theory of genre is applied to Gérard Grisey’s six-part cycle, Les espaces...

... of the 5-6 cycle are separately considered. The 5-phase trajectories are classified as diatonic, idiosyncratic, or obstinate. Despite its long history and current dominance, the mode of analysis based on Roman numerals and tonicizations is eschewed for sequential progressions. Instead, the connective role...

It thus engages its audience in its own critical project, in an open dialogue with traditional forms and functions.

Fourier spaces, constructed by Quinn, relate sets to one another based upon their composition from members of interval cycles, reflecting what might be called “harmonic quality.” Voice...
