WELCOME to the presentation of the first GENERATIVE MUSIC THEORY, based on logic and observation, in perfect accord with musical
intuition, which applies to all styles (folk, popular, jazz, classical) and which has somerthing to offer to composers, conductors,
What do we mean by generative
Come and discover that no musical phenomenon, rhythmic, harmonic, or melodic, is born complex. From very simple BASIC MATERIALS,
precise TRANSFORMATIONS, in several different parameters, gradually produce all the more complex material. No exceptions.
Every single note and chord is functional. This means that ALL music (whatever the style and the period) will be constructed
EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. With this insight, it is amazing to see how similar all music is way down "inside". The listener perceives
the final result as a finished product which often camouflages these generative operations.
Our aim is to make this site as complete and as clear as possible.
In it, you should be able to find (and understand) all you ever wanted to know
about the “mechanics” of music but were unable to find anywhere else.
The information on this site took over 60 years of secluded research.
Now we really need your suggestions to make the site user-friendly.
If you need any kind of help PLEASE send your comments and questions to
Your answers will be promptly printed on the comments&questions page.
Where is the best place to start?
Since this is a GENERATIVE approach,
it seems preferable, at first, to follow the step-by-step process of its development but
we strongly recommend that you start with the Guided Tours
and see how this scientific approach differs from the academic theory usually taught.
Once you have grasped what this site is about,
you may feel like browsing freely through the "Encyclopedic Body" of the site.
Don't forget to start here with the Guided Tours.
