Tunebook With Sheet Music and MP3 Audio I have selected 20 tunes for this tunebook. Not all of them are Irish tunes, but they are all tunes that I have played in a contra dance band (playing second fiddle and guitar) and tunes that I like. I think that they are all quite suitable for the Irish or simple-system flute, whistle, or other melody instrument. I tried to choose a fairly even sampling of reels, hornpipes, jigs, and waltzes and airs. Originally I had planned to play each tune on the Irish flute, but I opted, instead, to record the melody of the tune in step time with a midi piano voice and do the accompaniment with guitar in real time. This freed me from having to be so precise with my playing, and with recording in midi step time I had the freedom to record at my leisure, print sheet music, and alter the tempo of the piece after it had been recorded.
Measuring the Evolution of Contemporary Western Popular Music : Scientific Reports To identify structural patterns of musical discourse we first need to build a ‘vocabulary’ of musical elements (Fig. 1). To do so, we encode the dataset descriptions by a discretization of their values, yielding what we call music codewords20 (see Supplementary Information, SI). In the case of pitch, the descriptions of each song are additionally transposed to an equivalent main tonality, such that all of them are automatically considered within the same tonal context or key. Next, to quantify long-term variations of a vocabulary, we need to obtain samples of it at different periods of time. For that we perform a Monte Carlo sampling in a moving window fashion. The dataset contains the beat-based music descriptions of the audio rendition of a musical piece or score (G, Em, and D7 on the top of the staff denote chords).
Play The Armonica To play the armonica below, click on a glass bowl. Like the real armonica, the tone will linger as you click on the next bowl, putting tones together to make a melody. Now try playing armonica music using a more familiar keyboard. THE ETHOS OF THE AXIS SYSTEM (tonal serialism) Comparisons are, by their very nature, delusive. Still, I would like to venture the following comparative statement: classical harmony is to modal harmony what a geocentric world concept is to a heliocentric one.

In figure 1 the lower melody is harmonized by one a third higher - such an arrangement of the voices could be regarded as counterpoint, but there is little or no independence between the parts; for example there is no dissonance between the voices, and both rise and fall together in parallel. However, the arrangement in figure 1a demonstrates much greater independence between its two voices, with movement in one part while the other halts, divergence in the melodic direction of the parts, and with at least some occurrence of dissonance.
Theremin - A Playable Touch Synthesizer Using Web Audio API ✖Update: 7 February 2014 Thanks to everyone for sharing! Over 100,000 people have played on the theremin in the last 3 days which is absolutely amazing. jazz chord substitution chord substitution concepts Harmonic substitution is simply about replacing one chordal sound with another, or as I need to think of it, as one color for another. Whether it is in the written harmony from sheet music or the harmony implied by the melody, the theoretical concepts behind chord substitution becomes "search" tools for the learner. The coolness here is that we can create different shades of color, allowing for a variety of ways to blend the melody and harmony of a song together. Through chord substitution we can create different pathways to the same emotional, tonal and artistic destinations. We can disguise our artistic directions by changing traditional harmonic motions to create new twists and shades of emotions in the music.
