Musical Composition

Reginald Smith Brindle

  • First takes the student through the basic elements - melody, harmony, counterpoint, and rhythm - before covering a variety of special subjects such as writing vocal and choral music, accompaniments, and film and TV music
  • Devotes many chapters to composing with advanced and recent techniques including free diatonicism, bitonality and polytonality, atonality and twelve-note mic, and serialism and indeterminancy
  • Uses over 200 music examples to illustrate points in the text, and includes exercises for each chapter
