Princeton professor Dmitri Tymoczko is giving a lecture in June entitled:

"Rock Logic"

Abstract: Using some of the ideas in my book (A Geometry of Music) I will outline an indigenous theory of Rock harmony, showing how these musicians uncovered a natural and deeply logical alternative to traditional harmonic procedures--one in which harmonies tend to go "backwards."  I will show that similar ideas can be found in the music of the late 16th and early 17th century, including Morley and Schutz. From this point of view, the "functional" harmony of the baroque and classical period represents a departure from a larger norm.
