4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Charles Madden on February 16, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This is an original and useful approach to analyzing music. It is a giant step toward enabling man or machine to investigate the real complexities of large ensembles, and to see at a glance the overall structure of a piece and many of its otherwise invisible details. The use of signal processing equipment to create graphs of the harmonic frequencies and densities of sound formed by instruments playing in groups, rather than single instruments alone, creates a real possibility (sometime in a not-too-distant future) of machine analysis, classification, and memorization of any music, whether of the Western Common Practice period, Asian, Ethnic, African, or electronic.
Apparently this book is out of print, but it should be noted by scholars and students alike.
