- music can be

graphed along a rectangular coordinate system

represented numerically

drawn in traditional notation systems

- in graphic notation time is represented along the ordinate (horizontal axis)

- points of attack (changes in phase) will be represented along the abscissa (vertical axis)

- this is an analogy to typical sinus vibration

Forms of Periodicity

- periodicity is the continuous recurrence of a group

- identical recurrence of all groups in a series is a uniform periodicity

- single term groups are monomial

- monomial periodicity is a recurrence of a monomial group:

n+n+n+n

where n is of constant length in time.

This can then be translated into graphic and music notation

Interference of Periodicities

- periodicities can be combined into interference patterns

- known as resultants

- when combining monomials the larger is the major generator. The smaller is the minor

generator

- the synchronization of generators is represented as a%b

- the resultant is represented as r a%b

Binary Synchronization

1. find the common product or common denominator of the generators a*b

2. find the complementary factors of both generators of a it is b and vice versa (a*b/a=b,

a*b/b=a)

- graphically, the resultant is found by vertically aligning the attack points of the

monomial groups

- the simplest resultant of any group is T= r a&1

2%1

find the resultant r 2%1

common product 2*1 = 2

complement of a 1(2)

complement of b 2(1)

T=2

+

T represents the bar length

exercise 1: find the resultants of various major generators where the minor generator is 1

non uniform rhythmic groupings are found through the same process with higher minor

generators

exercise 2: find the resultants of the same major generators with a minor generator of 2
