The Harmonic Color-Tone Wheel

Color-Tone
When color symmetry is mapped onto the scale symmetry of a 7-tone diatonic scale, a perceptual correspondence can be established between vision and audition. Read More...

The Three Color Cones in the Human Retina

ThreeCone
The three color cones in the human retina resonate with specific frequency ranges of the light spectrum. Read More...

Diatonic Standing Wave Model

DiatonicWave
According to harmonic interference theory, the 7-tone diatonic scale of common practice music can be represented as a frequency doubling (first harmonic) of a 12-tone octave standing wave. Read More...

Color Spectrum to Log Octave Mapping

Spectrum
The range of human vision is 370THz at the red end of the spectrum to 740Thz at the blue end. Read More...

Standing Wave Symmetry in Music

Harmonic science extends to the atomic level too. Read More...

The Geometry of Music

Geomusic
The geometric balance of chords around the harmonic center is the source of musical ethos. It represents the symmetry of a standing wave and its opposing flows of energy. Read More...

Music Visualization

Visualization
When the Standing Wave Model is projected out in time, chords and melodies take the form of tumbling geometric shapes. Read More...

Harmonic Symbolism in Art & Music

Unfold
A harmonic archetype and incantation for the opening of Sortrilege (Sorcery for Three) by contemporary composer Robert Xavier Rodriquez. Read More...

Music and Reflective Interference Model

Reflective
Harmonic Interference Theory proposes a music theory based on human perception of resonance in both sound and light rather than Church tradition. Read More...

Tone-Color Dual Ring Model

DualColorRing
Color geometry - genesis of the Dual Ring Model (both diatonic and chromatic) in Harmonic Interference Theory. Read More...

Tone-Color Correspondence to a Double Octave

Double
This Tone-Color Correspondence to the Double Octave is based on the three color cones of the human retina. When the dark blue or indigo cone distribution is folded over the point of symmetry between the red and green cone distribution, it forms the four points of a 12-step color wheel. Read More...

Key of C Major from the Fourier Series on D

Cmajor
Corresponded this morning with author Jill Mattson, resulting in the following email exchange about the golden ratio (phi) and its relationship to the perception of music harmony. Read More...
