[Download links for the article and the Power Point show at the end]

Amine Beyhom’s article “A Hypothesis for the Elaboration of Heptatonic Scales”, originally entitled  “A New Hypothesis for the Elaboration of Heptatonic Scales and their Origins” and published (2010) in the proceedings of ICONEA 2008, has been emendated, updated and enriched, and is reissued for NEMO-Online Vol. 4 No. 6.

New research since its first publication presented complementary and sometimes clarifying facts which, with the evolution of terminology (see Beyhom’s “Lexicon” in NEMO-Online Vol. 2 No. 2 – in French), makes it indispensable to publish this new edition. Most of the tables and figures have been reintegrated in the body text, and a dedicated appendix (Appendix G) has been added concerning Octavial scales with limited transposition.

To comply with NEMO-Online publishing policy, and as with all articles of the review since Volume 3, the pdf version includes bookmarks corresponding to the titles, sub-titles, tables and figures, which should help the reader navigate between the different parts of the article.

Note: former Appendix G in the 2010 version (complete database – quarter-tone model with reduced alphabet of intervals – now Appendix I), and new Appendices J (generation of systems with the extended alphabet from 2 to 24 quarter-tones – raw results from the program Modes V. 5) and K (17ths of the octave full alphabet heptatonic generations of systems) are available below for download. Additionally, one Power Point show illustrating (mainly) Appendix G with audio examples, is proposed as a complement.

NEMO-Online Vol. 4 Nos. 6 & 7 : Call for papers

Research groups CERMAA, ICONEA and IReMus are seeking papers for the sixth and seventh issues of NEMO. The theme, continued from the theme of NEMO-Online No. 5 (available here), is about ‘Musicology/Ethnomusicology: evolutions, problems, alternatives’.

We would like these issues of NEMO to continue the debate initiated in NEMO-Online No. 5 concerning the usefulness of the science, the problems raised due to powerful and contradictory non-scientific characteristics, and the alternatives which may be proposed.

Papers to be sent both to Richard Dumbrill and Amine Beyhom and should follow the editorial layout.

Papers will be published on the site as preliminary versions as soon as they are evaluated, corrected and prepared for Internet publication; NEMO-Online issue No. 6 to be published as a whole in November 2017, NEMO-Online issue No. 7 to be published, along with complete Vol. 4 (NEMO-Online 6&7), in November 2018.

The Editing Board will consider the publication of papers which might be ‘off subject’ as long as they retain some relationship with the wider theme of the publication.

Deadlines: proposals by end of June 2017 and finalized paper by end of August 2017 for NEMO-Online No. 6, by end of May 2018 and finalized paper by end of July 2018 for NEMO-Online No. 7.

Previous volumes available here, individual articles on the dedicated page (new Articles tab) on NEMO-Online website.

Appel à contributions pour NEMO-Online Volume 4 nos 6 & 7

Les centres et groupes de recherches CERMAA, ICONEA et IReMus ont le plaisir d’annoncer le thème du Volume 4 de NEMO-Online, nos 6 & 7 : « Musicologies/Ethnomusicologies : évolutions, problèmes, alternatives ». Le thème est la continuation du thème de NEMO-Online no 5, que vous pouvez revoir ici.

Nous souhaitons à NEMO que les deux numéros de ce quatrième volume prolongent le débat sur l’utilité de la discipline, sur les problèmes suscités par ses caractéristiques fortement (et contradictoirement) a-scientifiques, et, surtout, sur les alternatives qui peuvent être proposées.

Les articles des ces deux numéros seront publiés au fur et à mesure de leur réception-évaluation-préparation pour la publication internet. NEMO-Online No 6 rassemblera les articles parus et en cours de parution et sera publié en Novembre 2017; de même pour NEMO-Online No 7 en novembre 2018, comme partie du Volume 4 (NEMO-Online Nos 6 & 7).

Date limite d’envoi des articles : fin août 2017 pour NEMO-Online No 6 et fin juillet 2018 pour NEMO-Online No 7.

English NEMO-Online No. 5 : Call for papers Research groups CERMAA, ICONEA and IReMus are seeking papers for the fifth issue of NEMO. The theme will be about ‘Musicology/Ethnomusicology: evolutions and problems’. Since its origins as Vergleichende Musikwissenschaft, ethnomusicology struggles to define itself in relation to classical Occidental musicology, the latter being the semantic carrier of a more general character which is nevertheless restricted to the study of musics which in a first instance concerns only the Occident, and in a second instance, which is concerned with music labelled as ‘learned’, even integrating popular musics such as jazz, pop, rock [more…]
