Published: 01 October 1999
...Brian Alegant This paper proposes a refinement of our understanding of pitch-class inversion in atonal and twelve-tone music. Part I of the essay establishes the theoretical foundation. It reviews the index number approach formulated by Milton Babbitt, examines characteristics of even and odd index...

... pratique (1760), with particular attention to the extensive discussion of the topic in the “Art de la basse fondamentale” (c. 1737–43). To a considerable degree, Rameau’s conception of supposition was worked out in dialogue with his critics. Retracing that dialogue helps to clarify a number of points...

... takes a wider domain of harmonic objects. A number of musical examples show how expanding the domain enables us to extend and refine some the conclusions of neo-Riemannian theory about Schubert’s harmony. Through analysis of the Trio and Adagio from Schubert’s String Quintet and other works using the...

... acoustiques (1974-85). Habitually regarded as an exemplar of spectral music, Grisey’s cycle may be understood as participating in a number of additional generic contexts at the same time. Taking such generic overdetermination into account not only sheds light on the range of conflicting interpretations that...

After reviewing several basic characteristics of Shostakovich's twelve-tone usage, this article expands and refines our understanding of his twelve...

This article addresses the analytical pitfalls of the integer-based contour labeling system by instead adopting a normalized scheme that maps pitches onto evenly distributed subsets of the real numbers from 0 to 1...

...Brett Clement This article establishes an expanded theory of tonicization for harmonic progressions in rock music. While previous discussions of tonicization have largely focused on the role of the V chord, this theory allows for a much larger number of tonicizing chords, which may articulate...

The final section of the study shows that, although the discrete mod-7 versions of these lattices appear quite different from their continuous mod-12 counterparts, the topological space underlying each of these graphs depends solely on the number of notes...

... (i.e., preserves a different number of common tones), the framework affords voice-leading flexibility. Second, each relation is maximally distant within its class, minimizing the possibility of suggesting a key. Examples drawn from Schnittke’s works demonstrate how the PSM framework is used to create...

In one type of expositional context, this integration involves harmonic linkage designed specifically to efface a formal...

Next, we expand the field of dis- cussion to the set of all real numbers greater than or equal to 0 and strictly less than 1, shown in 1(b). This represents an infinite pitch-class space that can be...
