In my Dissertation, I worked a way to convert every chord and set in a modulo 12 rhythm, so the entire catalog of FORTE are converted to rhythms, following the steps of Babitt: As a hardcore serialist, Babbitt was interested in converting 12-tone rows to rhythms, in a kind of 12-tone rhythm theory. Below, Wuorinen show one example of a typical Babbitt idea: For the sake of explaining my idea of function, it's important to have in mind that for Babbitt, the order of the row is very important and lead to different results in the pit
Dear Friends In my Doctoral Dissertation, I converted every FORTE number in a modulo 12 Rhythm via time-point-system. There is a complete catalog included (see the link below). It's in portuguese. After Janusz adjusted the Forte numbers to have the inversion, using "a" and "b" to differentiate the prime forms from the inversions, it was easy to convert using codes like this: (setf ch0 (time-point-system (pcs '5-11b :pitch)'s :start 0)) (setf ch1 (time-point-system (pcs '6-33 :pitch)'s :start 1)) (setf ch2 (time-point-system (pcs '7-11b :pitch)'s :start 2)
