The 8-Tone
Quarto-Modes Concept

Synopsis
The 8-Tone Quarto-Modes Concept is a special study into the diminished and its application for mainstream jazz players, advanced improvisators, and notational composers.  Ten years in development, and written by an internationally acclaimed musician for musicians familiar with standard scaletone harmony, it is a new paradigm for further possibilities in jazz, improvisational music, and notational composition.

The primary focus of the work is upon a chord named by the author, the diminished-major, symbolized as oM, which has current history in modern and mainstream jazz practice, as well as in classical music theory, but which has not up to now been so uniquely identified.  The chord and its symbol are based solidly upon accepted music theory - diminished scaletone notes set to chords in a form suitable for the work of both the improvisator as well as the notational composer. 8-Tone Exhibits

To Exhibits
Clearly presented in a graduated approach, the book's method steps carefully from familiar mainstream conventions into more advanced concepts of pandiatonicism - shifting tonal centers - by way of a new chord and its symbol. (For additional examples of spelling and application of the oM, see the Notated Piano version of Thornbird

Besides being an aid for musicians to develop along fresh lines from within the mainstream idiom, Concept also shows that it is possible to approach even that which is called atonal, or out, improvised playing in a studious and regulated manner.

By way of its diminished-major chords, a Quarto-Mode can be a self-contained organized relationship of tones - an enclosed micro-system.  The chord with its symbol is a tool inside a concept called a Quarto-Mode with which to shape new music.
