Preview — Simple Composition by Charles Wuorinen. Simple Composition by Charles Wuorinen. Originally published inthis book was reissued by C. Peters Corporation in The author, the composer Charles Wuorinen, describes the book in this way: Thus it is similar in intent to certain older books on the subject like Thomas Morley’s Originally published inthis book was reissued by C.
Thus it is similar in intent to certain older books on the subject like Thomas Morley’s “A Plain and Easie Introduction to Practical Musicke”for instance It outlines present practice, and while it can be used for purely didactic purposes, it can also be employed in composing “real” music. But since my presentation made extensive use of the twelve-tone system in its simplest and chsrles easily describable form, the book was taken as a primer in that system.
The fact that I used twelve-tone relations for convenience and only because of their simplicity was somehow overlooked.
Perhaps today in the year this book was reissued after its first publication in the book may make a slightly different contribution than it originally did: Paperbackpages.
