... of a direct product of orbit restrictions is a wreath product of the commuting group of one orbit restriction (as above) by the symmetric group on the set of orbits. Third, the commuting group for any group with any type of action is a direct product of such wreath products for each union of orbit...

... two discrete cyclic adjacencies (i.e., <1,1 not the space between them. Such distinctions, and perhaps more importantly, correspondences among pcsets based on the sets of cycles inhabited by the intervals within pcsets, prompts the present study. We begin in section 0 with a review of orbits...

... orbit of a C tonic. He quickly banishes the church modes, however, retaining only the “Phrygian” second degree. Thus what, in mod- ern terms, we would call the tritone-related pitch-class disappears from his mixed system. Schenker’s flirtation with polymodality is interesting when one...

... suggests this, of course.) Although E major is stable enough to serve as the structural goal of the piece, the har- monies prior to m. 14 do not come into the orbit of E. And so, as a key, E major relates not so much to the past (i.e., mm. 1–13) as to an unforeseen future. It is thus possible...
