Description

Puncta is the first textbook app for students of the time-honoured musical techniques of counterpoint and fugue. To get started with Puncta, you need little more than a basic working knowledge of notation, intervals and transposition. You will not need to know anything about harmony.

Puncta consists of some fifty pages of explanations, rules, examples, raw musical materials, sample workings and graded tasks. The tasks are strictly incremental, ranging from the simplest of two-voice exercises to planning and composing a three-voice stretto fugue. A suggested scheme for college implementation is included.

For centuries, counterpoint has proved the most effective way to teach and learn the syntax of western classical music. Its principal objective is the management of consonance and dissonance in relation to a regular musical pulse.

Fugue, the longest-lived method of thematic composition, is to music what the essay is to literature. Both are classic forms of student exercise that have also been cultivated as high art; each is concerned with the structured treatment of a prescribed subject.

Puncta is your introduction to these disciplines.

(To allow text and music examples to be readable without zooming, Puncta is functional in landscape orientation only. Pinch-zooming is nonetheless enabled on all text/music pages.)
