Orbital Geometry

As if I didn't have enough to chew on with LCCTO I stumbled over http://www.interferencetheory.com/
and as there has been no mention of Richard Merrick here, I thought some of you might be interested in his ideas.

And that at a right angle to this axis is the diatonic tritone {B, F}, representing the axis of greatest resonance and instability within {C} major. As we now find them on the Chromatic Ring, the vertical axis becomes the stable Harmonic Axis and the horizontal axis the “restlessâ€

Wow. That quote got my attention. I haven't heard of this guy before. Where's the quote from? I haven't come across it on the web site yet.

Merrick is simply trying to explore and explain that force that seems to make one chord or structure "want" to resolve/move somewhere else.

Bob is right that Merrick's work is "not the LCC". But since the LCC does not venture into the "why's" of HTG, Merrick's work is probably of interest to this audience.

Link is appreciated.
