Symmetry as a Compositional Determinant: reflection. Copyright © Larry J. Solomon, 1973, revised 2002 This chapter is devoted to demonstrating how reflective symmetry is variously manifested in musical composition and how these manifestations fall into similar and dissimilar classes. We have seen that the reflection operation involves the turning of a figure about a linear axis which will result in a congruence. Mathematically, the operation has been defined as: T(x,y)= (-x,y) or T(x,y)= (x,-y) Tonal Reflection in the Elements of Music A tonal axis in music, or more specifically an axis of pitch class, may or may not have temporal dimensions.
"Mirror chords" occur in both modern and traditional styles. Example 13. The major chord of example l3b, or a minor chord, cannot be reflected and result in a congruence as the diminished chord can. Any pitch set or pitch class set is tonally symmetric if its intervals are all equivalent in size . Example 14. Example 15. On this topic it is interesting to note Howard Hanson's theory of involution.

Gilles Jobin, October 2011. Taller modular ArquiMoebius by hippolyte. Andantino Amoroso. The referenced musical text is movement VII of Luigi Dallapiccola's Quaderno Musicale de Annalibera. This is a manifestation of the form of "crab canon," which employs a theme and then a repeat of the theme accompanied by its retrograde. The traditional implication of the crab canon is that the theme is structured in a way that a salient element becomes illuminated upon the accompanied repeat. For example, an individual harmonic function may be unclear on the first iteration, but the accompaniment provides additional pitches to clarify the harmonic progression. The first two staff systems depict the theme with square note heads; there is no explanation of this notation, so it is assumed that it serves to clarify the bounds of the pitches and rhythms of the theme; the lack of other notational markings (dynamics, articulation, etc.) implies that it is not to be performed.

México, DF.- Los cantantes no van a marchas ni mítines; no pueden asolearse. Los instrumentistas profesionales no "se plantan"; estudian entre 5 y 8 horas diarias, antes o después del trabajo. Así que los indignados con la compra-venta de votos y las trampas, los inconformes con la declaración de victoria para Enrique Peña Nieto desde la noche de la elección presidencial convocaron a colegas, alumnos, maestros y amigos a reclamar, con toda su fuerza, en el lenguaje que dominan: escrito sobre renglones de cinco líneas.
Y protestaron en Re menor. Este domingo lo hicieron. Interpretaron el Requiem de Mozart, la misa de difuntos más familiar para oídos tanto especialistas como iletrados. En el zócalo, al aire libre, 200 músicos vistieron luto para dolerse, impugnar y manifestarse. Unos tomaron asiento. ¿De dónde salieron? La idea nació en el Distrito Federal. Respondieron 200 en el escenario. Intensos, cantantes e instrumentistas compartieron ocho ensayos, un almuerzo y una comida. Moebius typography. Logo moebius. Moebius typography. M moebius. Scher moebius. Escher Style. It’s no secret around here that I despise winter and can’t wait for warm sunny days. Lately, I’ve been posting images and illusions that remind me of those beloved lazy summer days, and today is no different. In my Internet travels this morning, I found a fun Escher style pool illusion… I don’t know about […] If you’re a big fan of optical illusions, you’re familiar with MC Escher’s work.
Escher was a Dutch artist who, over the course of his life, created numerous pieces of art, many of which are viewed as some of the most popular optical illusions today. His impossible object illusions, like Relativity and Waterfall, are particularly popular. […] Here are three impossible #LEGO constructions for you to solve. Here’s a very fun animated tessellation picturing birds and cats. Have you seen this #Escher_inspired poster released by Etrade Australia recently? As a Moillusions reader, you’ve undoubtedly already seen your share of Penrose Triangles both here and elsewhere. Anarchy typography. Face to Face.
An interview with Jean François Porchez You’ll see his typefaces on the Paris Métro, gracing the pages of France’s premier newspaper, Le Monde, in magazines and books; even Beyoncé uses them. He was awarded the Prix Charles Peignot for excellence in type design, was president of ATypI, designed one of the best modern-day type revivals, and…. Well, there’s so much more that can be said by way of introducing this great talent of type, but I think John D. Berry sums him up best when he writes, he is one hell of a type designer. Why and how did you get started in type design? It was during my time at graphic design school (1987-89). Frutiger and Zapf, my two heroes at that time, helped me to understand what type design is. I learned to draw typefaces by hand on tracing paper (1988), then moved on to digitization with Ikarus (1992), making minor modifications on screen.
What do you like most about type design? I have great difficulty designing fonts without a function, a brief. . PF Champion Script Pro. Typographic Anarchy. Typography meets cartography | ComingAnarchy.com. “Strange Maps”: features the artwork of Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain, who span the fields of typography and cartography and find that our world is not left-aligned nor right-aligned, nor even centered. The world is _justified_. Innovative. “See the artist’s website”: Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) was a British explorer, army officer, military-political officer, and foreign correspondent born in India who led expeditions into Manchuria, Kashgar, and Tibet. He three times tried and failed to scale Mt. Everest and journeyed from China to India, crossing the Gobi desert and the Mustagh Pass (alt. c.19,000 ft/5,791 m) of the Karakoram mountain range in modern day Pakistan.
Anarchy tipography. MyFonts. The American type scene. Born in Dallas in 1923, and retired in Florida, Phil Martin had an exciting life, which started as a bombardier in WWII, and went on as a piano bar singer, publisher, cartoonist, comedian and typographer. He died in October 2005. In 1974, he set up TypeSpectra, and created these type families: Adroit (1981), Albert (1974), Analog (1976), Bagatelle (1979), Cartel (1975), Caslon (1979), Criterion (1982), DeVille (1974), Embargo (1975), Heldustry (1978, designed for the video news at the fledgling ABC-Westinghouse 24-hour cable news network in 1978; incorrectly attributed by many to Martin's ex-employee Ed Kelton: download here), Innsbruck (1975), Limelight (1977), Oliver (1981), Opulent [Light and Bold] (1975, by George Brian, an amployee at Alphabet Innovations), Quint (1984), Sequel (1979), Spectral (1974), Welby (1982).

Animation truly brings a new dimension to these kind of pictures that use repetition of shapes with no overlaps and no gaps – it additionally helps you see both variations of the image, no matter whether you originally recognised the empty space containing cat shapes, white space containing birds, or both! Looking forward to hear what you think of this? I never saw tessellations coming to life before. Perhaps once, when I think about it. Think something similar was featured in the “Escher’s working space” video we featured few months ago.
