Presentation slides : "raised 3rd , for Eamonn Andrews in D" Maybe jump to this particular slide in that same presentation : I introduce a nice figure that uses quartal harmony (stacked fourths -- mostly PERFECT fourths D+G+C then E+A+D then F+B+E which uses a dissonant tri-tone. "Eamonn Andrews" is a modal composition. See these files in this folder (which contains the presentation, mentioned above). The presentation slides explain to how play it, in terms of solfeggio (scale/mode degrees) I also include some notation, as well as : the notation / transcription -- in D dorian which is principally white keys (relative mode/key of/to C Major and a (natural) minor) and E phrygian too and G mixolydian.) My transcription was originally written in the transposed key of 'C' (dorian) and MuseScore easily transformed it (moving all pitches up 2 semi-tones) transposing it UP a Major-2nd (M2nd / whole-step). That way it is in D-dorian, which is (principally) white keys. pairs of stacked Perfect*-Fourths. The bass notes of each of these three chords are the 1st 2nd and 3rd degrees of dorian. If in "d" dorian mode key , E B F * Well, okay, the F and Bnatural aren't a PERFECT fourth -- but, instead, an augmented fourth (enharmonic equivalent to a Flatted-fifth (diminished-5th / i.e. : "TriTone") . Yes, indeed, McCoy Tyner played chords like that. In fact it's a standard part of modal Jazz vocabulary, it seems (also Chick Corea). then : D A E then : C G D === right hand melody === Described in terms of scale degrees : Right hand melody is simple too: seventh (7) , Fifth (5) , (repeat 3x -- that is, 'C' and 'A' pitches) then | 7, 6, 4 : || i.e. : | C , B, G : || Next phrase is another repeating figure: octave above root + minor-3rd, that is , degree "3" (or "10" if you will -- compound-3) 3 triplets, cascading : | 3, 2, 1 | 2, 1, 7 | 1, 7, 6 : || i.e.: | F, E, D | E, D, C | D, C, B : || Then, melody phrase begins on the 9 (or compound-2) , and : 1, 4 , 3, 7 , next, the melody phrase outlines that stack of fourths (not all PERFECT-fourths) based on degree '3' : The piches are, in descending fashion : 2or9 , 6, 3 next phrase: 5, 6, 7, 6, 5 (and I shan't go on ) Let me put that in concrete terms, pitches spelled-out (if in key of 'D'-dorian ) : E____ , D , G , F , C E , B , F A, B, C, B, A ... "Eamonn Andrews" in C overview with notation http://SaveDeo.com/download?url=http://www.Youtube.com/watch?v=el-DqyHCs6U Maybe that extra hit was a bot, or a human findin it "Eamonn Andrews in C - 3 chords and variations" http://Savedeo.com/download?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.YouTube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPVWwzkdxX20 That video (its visual content) consists of presentation slides (charts and graphs) -- rather than notation. There is no classical western musical notation used in that one.
