Description

If music is born of a succession of notes, only the art of choosing them well creates harmony. It is the different tones of a scale, their chords, tonal functions, movements and sequences that operate the magic sounds.
Both didactic and technical, this book presents a simple summary of the many components of musical harmony. Studying frequencies and resonances, it reveals the origins that intrinsically characterize the notes, the creations of scales, their specificities and the timbres of instruments. In order to understand what brings together these different elements in agreement, this work analyzes the physiological (functioning of the ear, etc.), physical (acoustics, spectral analysis, etc.) and mathematical aspects of harmony.
Accessible to both proven musicians and beginners, Musical Techniques: Frequencies and Harmony explains how to construct and perform successive sequences of harmonics, in order to harmonize, reharmonize, compose or improvise.
