This is a landing page for some of the more "academic" things I have written or done. Each link opens in a new window or tab.
- Descriptive harmony style guide - A personal, practical guide to writing Western harmonic symbols consistently and accurately.
- How many three-note sets with unique interval spacings in a major scale? - from a question by pianist Sam Leak. Presents two ways (one in code, one by thinking through music) of working it out.
- PhD reading list - as it says on the tin. Updates sporadically.
- new dark art - my MRes work from Keele.
- Contrafacts in jazz: language, myth, method and homage - part of my MRes work, but highlighted here so that it's easier to find.
