Other Harmony: presentation by the author

When I was young the virtues of tonal music and atonal music were strongly debated by composers and theorists, all of whom were quite divided on this subject. Nobody seemed to really notice that all this time Bartok and others were writing fine music without taking a position on one side or the other. I think we finally need a new harmony book that goes beyond tonal and atonal and considers all the Other Harmony that has dominated and continues to dominate music.
