    First published in , this original study argues that the main characteristic of music is that it expresses and evokes emotion, and that all composers whose music has a tonal basis have used the same, or closely similar, melodic phrases, harmonies, and rhythms to affect the listener in the same ways. He supports this view with hundreds of musical examples, ranging from plainsong to 4/5(2). Tonal Pitch Space, that “GTTM ’s pitch theory is incom-plete” (vii) and offers a diagnosis: the pitch reductions rely on stability conditions that are underdetermined. The stated goal of the new book is to provide a reliable method for gen-erating pitch reductions from musical scores. A central.

The presented distance function is based on Lerdahl’s Tonal Pitch Space [10]. It compares the harmonic changes of two sequences of chord labels over time. This distance, named the Tonal Pitch Step Distance (TPSD), is shown to be effective for retrieving similar jazz standards found in the Real Book [3].

    This chapter introduces and develops the concept of pitch space, beginning with a distinction between tonal and event hierarchies. After a consideration of previous approaches, the fundamental construct of the basic space is proposed. From this construct an algebraic and geometrical model is developed that calculates the cognitive distance in diatonic space of any pitch, chord, or region (key Author: Fred Lerdahl.   Atonal pitch space ; Triadic post-tonality (including voice-leading parsimony) Like books on scales, triads, and simple harmonic progressions in tonal music, this book introduces basic theoretical concepts for the post-tonal music of the twentieth and twenty-first : $

Editorial Reviews "A Generative Theory of Tonal Music by Fred Lerdahl and Ray Jackendoff is one of the most important works in music theory in the last half of the 20th century, and likewise it has taken its place among the foundational texts in music perception and cognition.

Thus the publication of Lerdahl's Tonal Pitch Space, a book which extends the GTTM project, is a significant Author: Fred Lerdahl. Models of pitch space have been developed in music psychology to account for perceived proximity among pitches, chords, or regions.

This article introduces a different model that (1) treats pitches, chords, and regions within one framework, (2) correlates with the experimental data, and (3) connects in interesting ways with a variety of music theories.

Drawing on Fred Lerdahl's Tonal Pitch Space, which is critical of the homology of tone, chord, and key space posited by the Riemannian Tonnentz, the article proposes a hybrid spatial model that draws on both the Riemannian tradition and Lerdahl's hierarchical model.

This space is musically obvious but has surprising explanatory power. The basic space is given in Figure 4, oriented toward a tonic chord in C major, notated in Roman-numeral fashion as "I/I," or "I of I"; chords are desig-nated in plain print, regions in boldface.
