TRANSPOSITION WITHIN THE NINE TONE MATRIX

As the first musician to classify the properties of this scale, you'll learn first hand the significance of Ashby's discovery of "Never before documented" aspects of Nine-Tone Harmony

THE DIMINISHED AUGMENTED SYSTEM

THE DIMINISHED AUGMENTED SYSTEM

In this course, you will learn the interdependent

properties of the diminished and augmented scales and their geometric relationship to one another. Using the 3D representation developed only by composer Ashby Anderson, the Diminished Augmented System can now be viewed in 3D form to aid comprehension.

THE NINE-TONE HARMONIC MATRIX

THE NINE TONE HARMONIC MATRIX 

This system is not taught in any college or university. In this course, Ashby has outlined the Nine-Tone harmonic matrix and it's never before documented properties that advance your comprehension of tonal organization.  You'll get detailed information via videos, diagrams, organization charts and weekly online meetings.

HARMONIC SUBSTITUTIONS USING THE D.A.S.H. METHOD

HARMONIC SUBSTITUTION USING THE D.A.S.H. METHOD 

You will learn how to effectively integrate and substitute The Nine-Tone Matrix within standard harmony and extended harmony with appropriate scales

MELODIC DEVELOPMENT

MELODIC DEVELOPMENT USING NINE TONE HARMONIC MATRIX

Learn about the gateway structures between the Diminished and Augmented Scale Systems that can be developed into melodic material that aid in using the Nine-Tone Matrix. These structures, documented only by Composer Ashby Anderson, are the key to navigating tonality beyond traditional methods. 

DEVELOPING HARMONY USING THE NINE-TONE MATRIX

DEVELOPING HARMONY USING THE NINE-TONE MATRIX 

The Nine-Tone Matrix gives the composer a broader choice of harmony to use with a given melody. This new development in harmonic organization gives the composer new ways to logically arrange advance harmony over more modern chords. You'll learn how to identify these ambiguous sounding sonorities by their intervalic structures and how to use them within the Nine-Tone Matrix or standard chord structures.

The Nine Tone System Of Harmony


Following his constant drive for innovation, Ashby developed his own method for music composition based on "Nine Tones" as a resource for his compositions. It was a necessary step in order for him to compose and navigate his ideas freely between all scale systems. What he found was an entirely new order of chord, scale patterns, and properties that were previously undocumented. Since his discovery, he has continued to find and document the phenomena in all his compositions through the Universal Chord Method For Tonal Navigation and the Diminished Augmented System of Harmony and  Scales along with many approaches to create music and form in his compositions.

 

MOTUS Advanced Music Theory Portal

 

In order to get this information out to as many musicians as possible, Ashby created the MOTUS Advanced Music Theory Portal. In this digital resource, Ashby gives you his personal method for music composition which is based on a "Nine Tone Matrix" that is not taught in any college or university. "The Portal", as Ashby calls it,  "allows me to continually update my information as I  discover new aspects of this system-while making it available to composers like me all over the world. It can be accessed on all devices like a mobile phone, pad, laptop or desktop, and avoids musicians having to lug around 200-page books, CDs or DVDs in order to access my information. Unlike an app, it can be updated daily and all media such as video, audio, scores and comprehension exercises are available anywhere you have an internet connection."
