Publications and other writings

If you're interested in my approach to music theory you probably want to check out my first book.

In recent years I have slowed down my pace of article production; instead, I am working on a new book, tentatively titled Tonality: an owner's manual, which is complete and out for review. I also have a large new paper called "Why Topology?" which I hope takes a step forward in understanding musical geometry.
