model Old Tonality Neutral Degrees (I C, VI C ) Modulation Degrees (II F, IV F, VII F ) New Tonality Cadence Degrees (II F & V F ) Arnold Schönberg: Harmonielehre (1911) What is the considered set of tonalities? What is a degree? What is a cadence? What is the modulation mechanism? How do these structures determine the modulation degrees?

model Modulation Theorem for 12-tempered Case S (3), (3) For any two (different) tonalities S (3), (3) there is a modulation (k,g) and M a quantum M for (k,g) Further: M S (3), (3) M, M (3) M M is the union of the degrees in S (3), (3) contained in M, and thereby defines the triadic covering M (3) of M (3) M (3) the common degrees of (3) and M (3) are called the modulation degrees of (k,g) the modulation (k,g) is uniquely determined by the modulation degrees.

experiments Theses of Erwin Ratz (1973) and Jürgen Uhde (1974) Ratz: The sphere of tonalities of op. 106 is polarized into a world centered around B-flat major, the principal tonality of this sonata, and a antiworld around B minor. Uhde: When we change Ratz worlds, an event happening twice in the Allegro movement, the modulation processes become dramatic. They are completely different from the other modulations, Uhde calls them catastrophes. B minor B-flat major

generalization Modulation Theorem for 12-tempered 7-tone Scales S and triadic coverings S (3) (Muzzulini) q-modulation = quantized modulation (1) S (3) is rigid. For every such scale, there is at least one q-modulation. For every such scale, there is at least one q-modulation. The maximum of 226 q-modulations is achieved by the harmonic scale #54.1, the minimum of 53 q-modulations occurs for scale #41.1. The maximum of 226 q-modulations is achieved by the harmonic scale #54.1, the minimum of 53 q-modulations occurs for scale #41.1. (2) S (3) is not rigid. For scale #52 and #55, there are q-modulations except for t = 1, 11; for #38 and #62, there are q-modulations except for t = 5,7. All 6 other types have at least one quantized modulation. For scale #52 and #55, there are q-modulations except for t = 1, 11; for #38 and #62, there are q-modulations except for t = 5,7. All 6 other types have at least one quantized modulation. The maximum of 114 q-modulations occurs for the melodic minor scale #47.1. Among the scales with q-modulations for all t, the diatonic major scale #38.1 has a minimum of 26. The maximum of 114 q-modulations occurs for the melodic minor scale #47.1. Among the scales with q-modulations for all t, the diatonic major scale #38.1 has a minimum of 26.

Lemma: If the seven-element scale S is generating, a non-trivial automorphism A of S (3) is of order 2. Proof: The nerve automorphism Nerve(A) on Nerve(S (3) ) preserves the boundary circle of the Möbius strip and hence is in the dihedral group of the 7-angle. By Minkowskys theorem, the composed group homomorphism A> GL 2 ( Ÿ ) GL 2 ( Ÿ 3 ) is injective. Since #GL 2 ( Ÿ 3 ) = 48, the order is 2. Lemma: Let M = : S (3) T (3) be a modulator, with A = Ÿ 2, the -orbit is (x) = e Ÿ (1+R)t.x e Ÿ (1+R)t.M(x) Lemma: Let M = e t.A: S (3) T (3) be a modulator, with A = e a.R.
