"Not really interested in that it seems to be revamping what many composers intuitively know and do without worrying about the mechanics and minutiae of how it’s done.
A recent thread evolved into a discussion about just this and concluded that tonal…"

Many thanks for your kind comments and suggestions. It's great when people actually take the trouble to read before rushing to judgement!

Many thanks for your comments and observations. ALL very helpful and positive. I am all too aware of my shortcomings in the tech department. Notwithstanding the age of the recording of Tanto Meglio, it's about time I dragged myself into the…"

"Hi Bob.
I listened to some of your music on the soundcloud, so I'm guessing you will hate my piano piece, with its deliberate references to older tonal idioms and textures. Nevertheless, you obviously know your onions and I would greatly appreciate…"

"Hi Ingo. Many thanks for listening and reading my thesis. It's important to understand that Thomes and Phases is very different from set theory, serialism - and, for that matter, the theories of Paul Hindemith, with which it has also been compared.…"

Nick Capocci replied to Ingo Lee's discussion How can I learn to write atonal music?
"Thank you, Ingo. I omitted to mention my own technique of Thomes and Phases. More complicated than pure atonal techniques, but with the "advantage" of employing tonal structures. I tried to explain it here a few years ago, but met largely…"

Nick Capocci replied to Ingo Lee's discussion How can I learn to write atonal music?
"Once I asked my teacher, Humphrey Searle, how to write atonal music of real character. He said" just write it from the heart, as you would any other music". 
Anyway, technically the best place to start is with serial technique. It's relatively…"

  • I listened "History of the Primates". Wonderful! Great technique of musical texture.

  • Very fun and interesting fugato you presente here Nick!
  • May I ask a few Q's on your thesis?

    1) Why Thomes? Why not melody... Phase I can only translate by "style", but your word is better : )

    2) Why A, B and D? They seem to me, they are examples, rather than actual definitions...

    3) The "coincidence"-chapter listed all possibilities of connection between Thomes and Phases (but the orders of the relativity, allow more possibilites).

    4) Would you mind, sending me the Tanto Meglio score for study? I really need to understand your/your theacher's theory upon a concrete example.

    I can send you a signed (+scanned) piece of paper, explaining that I will not misuse any copyright issues on your original work - As a proof for of my 'fair' purpose.

    If I manage, I will send you a small piece of *my* original work, with the newtonal theory applied... (Alot of my friends, musicians and non-musicians, strive for a modern piece sounding less like Schönberg!).

    I am very fond of your ideas, I do not approve 100%, but it seems to be a progress which I could not find the last time I was at our main library (in Vienna!)...

    Ario
  • I like your work... Nice discussion you provoked back there.
