Musical example of LCCOTO

The main body of the LCC and its practical application, including all 4 published versions of Book 1 with their inserts: the 1959 tan cover; the 1959 light green cover Japanese edition; the 1970‘s white cover, which adds an illustrated River Trip to the 1959 edition, and the currently available Fourth Edition, 2001.

The authorization code is the first word on Page 198 of the Fourth Edition of the LCCTO.

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

Dear friends,

Here i expose an string arrangement using the concept.

This "matrix" use minimum gravity for the conduction of the voices.

The harmony is "aleatory".

Really nice stuff. I look forward to looking at it more in depth.

I wonder if you would give us more of an idea what you mean by "matrix", minimum gravity, and how you used aleatory practices to come up with the harmony?

Thanks for sharing!

Well , this is just an organization of the notes of a given harmony using the criteria of minimum gravity, which in classical music is classified as the "best conduction".

Analyzing the mathematics given before, you can understand that the thing that really matters is the "step" between the notes , so the whole arrangement sounds at it best when the voices are conducted this way .

If you are interested we can contact via Skype.

You can write me to to fix a date and share info if possible.
