Lawrence Ball: Thoughts & Notes on METHOD MUSIC

In an effort to bring a deeper understanding to the complexity and inspiration behind METHOD MUSIC, the double album of algorithmic compositions based on Pete Townshend's "Lifehouse Method," composer and mathematician Lawrence Ball is writing a series of articles about different legs of the discovery of his Harmonic Mathematics system of algorithmic composition, how he came to collaborate with Pete Townshend, and the processes behind the creation and release of METHOD MUSIC.

A new post will be published every couple of days. Check back here, or the PARMA pages on Facebook and Twitter for updates on new posts.
