This blog is not dead. You might remember that I’m working with a team in IRCAM (Paris), as well as with Andrée Ehresmann, on a categorical formalization of some musical structures known as K-Nets and PK-Nets. We published a paper in the MCM 2015 proceedings, and since then we have expanded this work in many directions, leading to a recent submission of a much larger paper to Perspectives of New Music. This took us a lot of time, hence the reduced activity on this blog.
If you happen to be in Lille, France on March, 23rd, Andrée Ehresmann, Moreno Andreatta, and I will be giving a lecture in the “Séminaire Itinérant de Catégories”, presenting our work on PK-Nets and our recent results.
Here is the link to the seminar website.
I hope to be able to return to this blog soon. I’d like in particular to talk about the Z-relation, and homometric sets in music.
