A Projection-Oriented Mathematical Model for Second-Species Counterpoint

  title={A Projection-Oriented Mathematical Model for Second-Species Counterpoint},
  author={Octavio Alberto Agust'in-Aquino and Guerino Mazzola},
  journal={arXiv: History and Overview},
Drawing inspiration from both the classical Guerino Mazzola's symmetry-based model for first-species counterpoint (one note against one note) and Johann Joseph Fux's "Gradus ad Parnassum", we propose an extension for second-species (two notes against one note).

Musicological, computational and conceptual aspects of first-species counterpoint theory
We re-create the essential results of a 1989 unpublished article by Mazzola and Muzzulini that contains the musicological aspects of a first-species counterpoint model. We include a summary of the


Counterpoint in 2k-tone equal temperament
This paper presents a brief overview of Mazzola's counterpoint theory for the 12-tone equal temperament [G. Mazzola, The Topos of Music, Birkhäuser-Verlag, Basel, 2002]. A similar theory for a
