Common Parameter Spaces

Part of the Computational Music Science book series (CMS)


This appendix chapter is an overview, not an exhaustive treatise of spaces which parametrize sound objects. These spaces where sounds are positioned always define an aspect, never the totality of music thinking, and every attempt to define a preferred space will narrow the music thinking, not the music. The best that can occur is that we offer an encompassing or at least a representative ensemble of parameter spaces which are interrelated by a precise relation. To this end, it is recommended to distinguish topographic positions, above all in their realities and communicative perspectives. This will also entail the corresponding mathematics.
