Create an analytical Tool
A Tool is a post published in the Catalogue of Tools. It can be an already established, well known method of musical analysis. Or you can invent one.
The forum’s criteria for a Tool are:
– Is described in a short text of simple words
– Includes the use of audio examples
– Focuses on hearing analysis of instrumental/electronic pieces (or excludes text/lyrics from analysis)
Apply a Tool / Write an article
On the Workbench, Tools from the Catalogue are applied. Here, the analysis happens. The Tools can be used to one’s own purpose, in long articles or short, simple applications. Just drop the name or a link of the Tool(s) you use in your article.
The copyright of the article of course belongs to you.
