Transformation Graphs and Networks (3): Formalities
This chapter develops the formalities of transformation networks. The structure of a network allows us to assign a formal “input” function to some things and a formal “output” function to other things; these functions seem of considerable musical interest in some cases. The networks have intrinsic rhythmic properties which can also be studied formally. Network structure can accommodate hierarchic levels in a quasi-Schenkerian setting, as an example shows.
