An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

Hey, wow, nice work Motherlode!

Can you help me understand what this means exactly?

Did Ms. Edith DiBartolo actually understand the whole idea of Sonic Migration from beginning to end? Is that why it took a year?

Is the copyright on the actual written musical work "Mother of Tongues" as you posted it on the FreeJazzInstitute, or is it on some other specifically written document, such as a written description (in language) of Sonic Migration? Do you plan to publish your ideas of Sonic Migration somewhere in addition to the various forums, or will it simply be used for your own composing, etc.?

Is copyright as literature different from copyright on music?

Sorry if I am asking ignorant questions, I haven't researched this at all.

Is there somewhere one can actually read the copyright notice from the Copyright Office pertaining to Sonic Migration?

I am asking for a couple of reasons, one, because I have always been interested in what you are doing, and two, because I have an in-depth concept on a particular topic that I may want to publish some day.

I have no doubt that many participants on this forum have their own ideas and concepts. Dogbite and the Chromatic Cube come to mind. Strachs, etc.... Is this something we should all be looking into before publishing our findings?

Thanks for being patient with all my questions...

Great stuff Motherlode!

I finally got a chance to check out the copyright online.

Here's a direct url, for people to check out.

It mentions that Sonic Migration is:

"A unique process to generate harmony from the entire spectrum of intervals (144) in western music."

Motherlode said:
Like I've said more than once, functional harmony is wasteful of the information contained in the LCC.

Yes, you've taught us quite a bit on this topic!

I think a user's guide to Sonic Migration would be quite useful, perhaps to the forum as whole, as a reference point.
