Harmonic Topology

  • Guerino Mazzola
Part of the Computational Music Science book series (CMS)


This chapter introduces a systematic correspondence between chords and symmetries. It lays the morphological fundament for a semantic theory of harmonic functions which will be exposed in the following chapter. Essentially, the idea of such a correspondence is to carry over the structural discourse on harmony to richer objects by an intermediate switch to ‘richer’ addresses.
