What is Harmony Space?Based on the Longuet-Higgins (1962) and Balzano (1980) theories of harmonic perception, Harmony Space (Holland 1994) is designed to teach novices principles of tonal harmony and harmonic progression, by exploiting intuitive prior knowledge of, for example, straight-line movement, proximity judgments and visual grouping. This reduces the need for prior specialized domain knowledge of musical concepts when playing, composing and analysing harmony.
