Back in the winter, I was told by a professor a different way of doing negative harmony – an alternative, one could say.
In the past, I have talk about the use and understanding of negative harmony, so be sure to read-up on it before diving into this new technique.
Anyways, my proposed two different ideas of this alternative to negative harmony by reflecting pitches over different point of the key/scale/pitch collection.
The first method was to reflect on the tonic. So in a C major key, we have the diatonic and chromatic notes of:
By reflecting the tonic onto itself, we get a formula like this:
Now, we can substitute original pitches in a harmony for new ones to get an negative harmony alternative approach.
