Description

Part of the Treatise On Rhythm, Colour And Ornithology written in French by Olivier Messiaen, this seventh volume talks about modalities, sonority/colours, chord colours, modality tabs usedby Messiaen, and the analysis of 'Three small Liturgies'.

This treatise depicts the full theory behind Messiaen’s compositions and how he composed music, including his conception of rhythm, his incorporation ofbirdsong and his relation to sound and colours.

While most composers struggle to explain their composition, Messiaen has managed to write a Treatise in 7 volumes to explain all the important aspects of his work.

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer who was passionate about Ornithology and one of the most important composers of his century. Inspired by Japanese music, he had a very specialway of composing and his work can be identified by its complexity, its diatonic aspect, its harmony with limited transposition, its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsong,including the 'Bird Catalogue' in 7 volumes
