  Interval (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An interval may be inverted, by raising the lower pitch an octave, or lowering the upper pitch an octave (though it is less usual to speak of inverting unisons or octaves).
The inversion of a major interval is a minor interval (and vice versa); the inversion of a perfect interval is also perfect; the inversion of an augmented interval is a diminished interval (and vice versa); and the inversion of a double augmented interval is a double diminished interval (and vice versa).
Interval cycles, "unfold a single recurrent interval in a series that closes with a return to the initial pitch class", and are notated by George Perle using the letter "C", for cycle, with an interval class integer to distinguish the interval.

 Interval (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intervals may also be labelled according to their diatonic functionality, as is commonly done for tonal music, and according to the number of notes they span in a diatonic scale.
The interval of a note from its tonic is its scale degree, thus the fifth degree of a scale is a fifth from its tonic.
Intervals may also be described as narrow and wide or small and large, consonant and dissonant or stable and unstable, weak and strong, simple and compound, vertical (or harmonic) and linear (or melodic), and, if linear as steps or skips.

 Interval (music)
Intervals are named after the number of notes they span in the diatonic scale.
Typically names with 'minor' or 'major' in them are preferred, so the more correct way to write the interval given in the example is 'minor 7th.' The primary exception to this being in the case of a diminished 7th, which has a specific function within a full diminished 7th chord.
The interval of augmentation and diminishment is a semitone only in modern equal temperament, where a semitone is exactly half a tone.

 Interval (music)
In music theory, an interval is the distance in pitch between two notes, the lower and higher members of the interval.
It is important to note that while intervals may be named by their harmonic functions, for instance, a major second, may be described by a ratio, cent, or integer, not every interval described by these more general terms may be described with the harmonic function name.
Important intervals are those using the lowest integers, such as 1/1, 2/1, 3/2, etc. This method is also often used in theoretical explanations of equal-tempered intervals used in European tonal music which explain their use through their approximation of just intervals.

 Music Theory-Interval   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In Western music, the names of intervals reflect the number of tones of the diatonic scale (the seven-note scale using the tones A through G) that are encompassed by the interval.
Western music eventually went beyond the diatonic scale in its choice of tonal material, thereby giving rise to other augmented intervals (such as C-A-sharp, an augmented sixth, a half-step larger than the major sixth C-A) and to diminished intervals (compressed by a half-step, as, C-sharp-E, a diminished third).
Intervals larger than an octave retain the basic acoustic identity of their corresponding smaller intervals; thus, a twelfth is sometimes termed a compound fifth, or an octave plus a fifth.

Intervals may be measured acoustically in terms of their vibration numbers.
An interval between two natural notes, neither note being a sharp or a flat, is a major interval; if it is reduced by a semitone, it becomes minor.
An interval may also be expressed by means of the ratio of the frequencies of its two tones.

 Chord (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music and music theory, the term chord is used in several different senses.
This triad is major because the interval from C to E is a major third.
Although these symbols are used occasionally in classical music as well, they are most common for lead sheets and fake books in jazz and other popular music.

If the interval of a minor second were enlarged by an octave, it would become a minor ninth, the major second would become a major ninth, the minor third a minor tenth and so on.
Relative Pitch is indispensable for identifying musical structures, whether in the inscription of existing music, the analysis of compositions by ear, identification of fellow bandmates' expositions and/or identification of music heard mentally while writing or expressing in real-time.
You'd recall that the musical fragment for that interval is Ozzy's main vocal in the tune "War Pigs".

 Tonal Consonance versus Tonal Fusion in Polyphonic Sonorities
Were it the case that fused intervals are avoided in polyphonic music in order to maintain voice independence, one might expect the degree of avoidance of a given interval to be proportional to the strength with which that interval promotes tonal fusion.
Musical notation permits the same (equally tempered) pitch distance to be spelled using several aliases -- as in the case of the diminished fifth and augmented fourth.
Intervals exhibiting high positive Z-scores may be deemed "preferred" in the sense that the are "sought-after" -- and this fact is independent of the actual prevalence of the interval.

In music theory, an interval is the difference in pitch between two notes and often refers to those two notes themselves.
Finally, it is also possible to label intervals using the logarithmic measure of centss, as is used to compare other intervals with those of twelve tone equal temperament.
Intervals may also be described as narrow and wide or small and large, consonant and dissonant or stable and unstable, simple and compound, vertical (or harmonic) and linear (or melodic), and, if linear as steps or skips.

 Music's interval number names explained_page 1_@TheCipher.com
Intervals are usually introduced in the context of notation fundamentals, that is, as they appear (fl dots) written among the lines and spaces of the staff.
Intervals can be illustrated and explained using the familiar C major (or C chromatic) letter-line with no loss of meaning, less stress, and less confusion.
Given that music’s interval number-names and symbols are all based on the Major scale’s intervals we’ll begin there and progress to the number-names and symbols of non Major-scale intervals.

Intervals are the relative distance between two notes.
For instance in the case of G Major, the 4th interval is the note C. The Circle of Fifths works for minor scales as well.
For instance, the 6th interval of C Major is the note A. Therefore the relative minor of C Major is A Minor.

 Music theory instruction for the beginner and advanced student
Music theory is to be understood by all musicians.
Intervals in music theory are used to describe a few different things.
When intervals are added above eight (the octave), they are counted 9,10,11,12,13,14… However, we know that the eigth, tenth, and twelth note are merely repeats of the triad notes an octave lower and if it’s a maj7 chord the fourteenth is a repeat of the seventh so we don’t need to count them again.

But there were musical treatises and sets of rules produced that did come to forbid the use of the interval, which was seen as wrong when it came up in choruses of monks.
Music has a powerful subconscious effect, and certain notes can invoke certain internal reactions within the listener they may not be aware of.
The tritone is a great musical motif and can work brilliantly, but when I was taking my music O level 30 years ago we were banned from using it because it was 'wrong'.

 Important music concept: Interval   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Harmonic intervals can be identified by specifying the name of the lowest note in the interval, (called the interval's root) and then specifying the interval type.
For instance, the interval formed by a G and the B a major third higher is called a G M3 interval.
Since intervals built on roots that are octaves apart (that have the same note name) sound so similar to one another, all of those octave apart intervals are named by the same name.

C to the D an octave and a note higher, which may be spoken of either as a major 9th or as a compound major 2nd.
It will also be found that perfect intervals remain perfect (C up to G a perfect 5th; G up to C a perfect 4th, etc.), while major ones become minor, minor become major, augmented become diminished, and diminished become augmented.
The concordant comprise all perfect intervals and all major and minor 3rds and 6ths; the discordant comprise all augmented and diminished intervals and all 2nds and 7ths.

Analyzing the evolution of music systems is a very difficult task, as whatever may be said, suggested or written, there is no way that we can be positive about the actual music played, composed or improvised when speaking about ancient music.
In the interval order of the above Major Pentatonic Mode we notice the big 3rd minor steps between E-G and A-C. If each step is filled with one tone, then we have various 7Tonic scales.
A well-known example is the Tetrachordon interval and the various combinations to fill it.
