9781420847833: KEYBOARD CONNECTIONS: Proportion and temperament in music and architecture. Equal temperament, the golden section and a few other mysteries

Although music theory and temperament have been familiar studies since the time of Pythagoras, written explanations can be obscure and often mystical. This book describes proportion and temperament in the simplest way using straight forward diagrams and minimum text Anthony Osborne, with his architectural training, produces a range of illustrations as a practical guide, readily understandable to the reader whether or not they have musical, mathematical or scientific knowledge. Principally concerning the piano keyboard, this book is an information source regarding the connections between music, and architecture. He explains Equal Temperament and the pivotal role of the Dominant Seventh and explores Doppler''s theory, sound, light and colour and the relevance of proportion and consonance in the universe around us.

About the Author:

Anthony Osborne was educated at UCS. He trained in architecture at the Bartlett School, London and in Paris during the 1950s. Studies included classical Greek Orders, Gothic and Renaissance, emphasising scale and proportion. He also attended David Bomberg''s inspirational drawing classes. Osborne visited works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Corbusier. Always intrigued by proportion in buildings, it was not until learning piano following retirement, that Osborne became fascinated by this fundamental link between music and architecture. Although these proportional and mathematical connections are obscure in written form, he realised temperament could readily be illustrated by graphics. He set about understanding the complexities and attempting to explain the subject in the simplest possible way. This book is the result.
