Description

This chapter explicitly compares the derivation of metrical structure in harmonic serialism (HS) to the structure building operations found in MP, and claims that 'both theories seek to explain the derivation of complex structures by deriving them via repeated application of simple operations under the control of an optimizing grammar.'
