16-tone melodic book for musicians
« on: June 25, 2011, 01:03:03 PM »

Announcing a new book to be released soon -

This has been in the works for quite some time.  The original version of this has been praised by many including John Coltrane and Zappa. -ron
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The sixteen tone version of Nicholas Slonimsky's "Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns" will be available soon! For a very long time Slonimsky's thesaurus has been a reference manual and object of study among students, master musicians and composers alike. For the first time, a melodic thesaurus for 16-tones is available, with all examples written on a 6-line staff utilizing the 9-note MOS (moment of symmetry scale) Meta-Mavila.



The approach to writing this text is completely analogous to the methods employed by Slonimsky, including progressions, Heptatonic and Nonatonic Scales, Heptatonic and Nonatonic Arpeggios, Pentatonic Scales, Bitonal Arpeggios, Sixteen-tone Patterns, Crossing Intervals, Mutually Exclusive Chords, Quadritonal Arpeggios, Invertible 16-tone Progressions, Intervallic Series, Mirror Interval Progressions, Complementary Scales, Permutations, Panpelogic Progressions, Double Notes, Plural Scales and Arpeggios, Polytonal Scales, Polyrhythmic Scales, Palindromic Canons, Autochordal Harmonization, etc.

I expect this is a fairly large book ... I didn't realise how big your books were until I saw you flipping through one on a video.

What do you mean with sixteen-tone patterns? The sixteen-tone Dots inlays?

Hexadecaphonic tone rows type arrangments analogous to the 12-tone patterns you find in Slonimsky's book.

  < Heres a few of the intervallic based examples from the section
Youll recognize these from the original 12-tet version of the Thesaurus if you're familiar with it.

Yes this is one of the largest books, more than likely will be the largest. I have been re-vamping all my stuff lately and cleaning things up as I hastily made alot of the first copies. Most books are around 150 pages and I've got about 20 of them....

I have a few electrics laying around I need to detwelvulate..... Im thinking something like 18, 21, 29,
