An Introduction to Metatonal Music.
This book by versatile trumpet player and composer Randy Sandke is divided into three parts.
- Part One: Sandke identifies and organizes all four-note chords which lie beyond the tonal system and cannot be represented by conventional chord systems.
- Part Two: deals with deriving melodic material from these metatonal chords
- Part Three: Sandke shows how he has used these ideas in his own music, with example pieces included for symphony orchestra and jazz quintet.
