Why did Pythagoras pause outside a Blacksmith's workshop? Can the
nature of Harmony really be understood visually? Why do harmonies
leave gaps or 'commas' when added together? In this charming little
book Anthony Ashton uses a Victorian device called a Harmonograph
to tell the story of Harmony and the intervals in the scale. With
useful appendices and exquisite line drawings this is a unique and
original introduction to this magical subject. WOODEN BOOKS are
