Well it's taken about seven years - but at last an update! I've added a new section called "Deeper Theory" that contains various papers that I have written and am currently writing about music theory.
15th May 1998
Complete redesign of the whole site. I am now using "style sheets" - this means that the site can only be viewed perfectly using Netscape Navigator/Communicator 4, or Internet Explorer 3 or 4. With older versions of these programs, the site is perfectly readable, but some of the formatting will be incorrect. Both of these browsers are free and can be downloaded from Netscape and Microsoft. This site is best viewed if you have the fonts Verdana and Georgia installed on your system - these are available for both Apple Macintosh and Windows, and can be freely downloaded from Microsoft.
