Eric VanDuyne

I studied George Russel's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization for a year with Ben Schwendener of the New England Conservatory. The whole thing is based on the notion of “tonal gravity” and is a great new way to think about chords, melodies, and how they relate to one another. I use aspects of it almost all the time in some way shape or form.
