The Architecture of Music

Book Reviews

Well written and easy to understand. The diagrams were nice looking and many of them were easy to understand. You clearly have a very good grasp of the topic and if I am not mistaken come from a fretted instrument background. Your use of interval names helped to clarify some questions I had while reading. I appreciate your clear understanding of scale theory and chord structure and it's use for analyzing music.

The idea of negative chords must be very new to music theory, since I got my degree twenty years ago and they were called second inversions. You referenced this in your book and I was glad to see it, I have never heard of Negative chords and I am not sure how they function, second inversion is baroque old so a new name makes some sense if it functions differently, I will do some research on the topic and for that I very much thank you.
