Generative Theory of Tonal Music by Fred Lerdahl
Book DescriptionA classic in music theory since its publication in 1981, this work models music understanding from the perspective of cognitive science. The point of departure is a search for a grammar of music with the aid of generative linguistics. The theory, which is illustrated with numerous examples from Western classical music, relates the aural surface of a piece to the musical structure unconsiously inferred by the experienced listener. From the viewpoint of traditional music theory, it offers many innovations in notatation as well as in the substance of rhythmic and reductional theory.

Tonal Pitch Space presents a model of diatonic space that quantifies intuitions of the relative distances of pitches, chords, and keys. The model assigns prolongational structure, represents paths through the space, and computers patterns of tension and attraction as musical events unfold.
