This System of Harmony at the Intermediate Level

At the onset of this research, we were looking for a 'map of music harmony'. This system was found to involve precisely 17 Spectrums and their 119 modes. Their spatial-relation allows for such a map of harmony to be obtained; so these modes are collectively called 'The Modary'. The map shows all the pathways of key-change, also known as modulation, and also shows the ability to combine modes to create scales containing more than 7 notes, such as in the Flamenco Scale, which contains 8 notes by blending two modes:

An excerpt from the map of the system shows the two modes which make up the Flamenco Scale, coming together at 100% precisely at one of the 12 map-positions:

The results of the system can be projected to the musician on their instrument of choice. The blended modes are accounted for by the use of gray notes. Here comes the flamenco scale; try to play along to your own rhythm while following the graph.

The map of music harmony that I was charting, has been obtained through a very detailed and lengthy process. Throughout the search, I've composed five record albums for CD, some with collaboration from expert musicians who I am pleased to say are my very good friends.


As a student of drums, piano, guitar, and saxophone at age ten, I began performing in music groups as a vocalist and instrumentalist, including some of my own songs amidst pop-rock cover songs. Continuing study of harmony theory, I began creating this new approach to learning music by ear, which relates the scales of musical harmony to a spectrum of colors. After years of development, this system is useful in all levels of harmony study: a subject essential to composition and improvisation. It applies to all melodic instruments.


Rhythm is also essential to musical arrangement: the final phase that brings all the elements of a band together, whether live or in the studio. With over 20 years of experience performing live and creating in the studio, I offer to help provide the necessary elements to fulfill your musical knowledge and goals.
