    To elaborate on what I got out of tonight's class. A density unit is a number of stratta (or parts, or frequencies) lasting a certain duration of time units. A delta is a group of density units. A theta is an arrangement of density units (delta) taken from a linear arrangement to a vertical level, within the boundries of the highest density unit's value. Easier to see visually in graph form.

    Phil DiTullio Nice encapsulation. Theta is vertical movement. Or phase rotation.

    After tonight's class I'm starting to grasp the concept and nomenclature of density a bit more. I can understand the figure at the bottom of page 1228 (fig131) and I hope we might get to discuss delta a bit next week.

    Phil DiTullio We wlll be talking about density for a while. We can look at all aspects. The more questions the better idea as to which concepts need to be explained better.

  • This is such a great version of this song! I have to tell you I have taken my accordion out again!

    We haven't found any concrete evidence that Burt Bacharach had studied the System. There is a paper regarding Oscar Levant but I will check with Lou if he haas studied the System.

    Finally took the plunge and purchased East/West Quantum Leap Symphonic Choirs. It's installed & functional but it took all day to get it to work. Haven't messed around with Wordbuilder yet.

    From "An American In Paris", featuring Oscar Levant (with Gene Kelly) awesome scene.

  • Christopher Paul replied to the topic 'Let's start this list.' in the forum.

    From Wikipedia: "In New York, Schillinger flourished, becoming famous as the advisor to many of America’s leading popular musicians and concert music composers including George Gershwin, Earle Brown, Burt Bacharach, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Oscar Levant, Tommy Dorsey and Henry Cowell."

    Not sure how much influence Schillinger had on Oscar Levant, that I would really like to know.

    Tim,
    In the Theory of Rhythm section on Instrumental Form there are techniques for distributing attacks through different instrumental groups. This really helps in arranging. Also the techniques on distribution of attacks helps writing counterpoint lines or arrangement strata.
    Circular permutations can be used for voice leading. The theory of rhythm is the back bone of the Schillinger's theories.

    Yeah Phil,
    cool ideas. I guess, these permutations can be applied to different functions of a score, i.e. to be used as comping, bass, drums, melody etc as they all are related to the basic r5:3? Phew
    How much in the schillinger system at least in the arrangement realm is guess work, how much can you develop here in JS logical ways regarding an arrangements.
    Concretely spoken:
    Is there a way to develop which permutation serves which function? I will get some more infos in the universe in JS´s book then we should skype a bit on the overall approach.
    Best Tim

    Hey Phil, is there a class tonight? I'm lost. The link you sent was to the last weeks recording.

  • Phil DiTullio replied to the topic 'film scoring' in the forum.

    Tim,

    Great start. Then you can do permutations. (2+1+2), (1+2+2), (2+2+1) Try (3+2)^2. Then coefficients of Recurrence .
    Example: (3A+1B+2C) A is set to (3+2) B-(1+2+1) C= (2+3) Create you measures this way. All sorts of arrangements are possible.
