Published: 01 October 2016
...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...

..., 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...

..., modality, chord succession, and harmonic function. In demonstrating these concepts, four categories of tonicization are illustrated: primary diatonic , in which a tonicization employs only diatonic chords of the mode; primary chromatic , which occurs due to chromatic inflection or modal borrowing...

... Rameau, he, too, developed an overarching explanatory model of harmony that involves coherent concepts of harmonic functionality and chord morphology. Heinichen's and Rameau's “systems,” however, rest on opposing assumptions. However many speculative aspects it may embrace, Heinichen's music theory...

After defining “absolute color” in the context of Gluck’s orchestration, Ernst Kurth demonstrates how “absolute” wind instrument colors delineate “absolute” “destructive” harmonic colors in Wagner’s Tristan instrumentation. Finally, Arnold Schoenberg’s functional...

... not to be skipped by theoretically experienced readers: Doll takes the time to carefully deconstruct such topics as harmonic function, not only to help the novice but also to define them squarely in his own context and to avoid confu- sion with any traditional usages irrelevant to the music at hand.

On the global level, it can serve a variety of formal functions: highlighting salient cadences; opening a space for virtuosic display; and developing...

The internal 6-phase chords of an ascending 5–6 sequence, which lack a harmonic function, likewise often take on such characteristics. In Example 3d, dominant emulation may occur if chromatic C≥ substi- tutes for diatonic C...
