ONE DEVICE FOR CREATING ABSTRACT MUSIC

We should have our little chart of the chromatic scale and the corresponding notes and numerals that go with each alphabetical letter.

Only one specific note is used with a specific letter of the alphabet.

If a note gets repeated, it should be either in the same octave, or a different octave depending on the location of the alphabetical letter.

Three octaves are used for the notes and numbers in this specific lesson.
Take any written communication you have. From that pick out a paragraph, and take it word by word. Let's assume we use the first sentence of this lesson page.

First word is "we". "a#" note is used for the "W". The letter "E" uses the letter "e"

Second word is "should". The letter S = "f#" (second octave), "H" = "g", "O" = "d" (second octave), "U" = "g#(second octave), "L" = "b" (first octave), "D" = "d#"

Third word is "have". "H" = "g", "A" = "c", "V" = "a", "E" = "e"
We
Should
Have
The next little trick is to select chords that would go with the notes and still make some kind of sense out of what you have. You also control the rhythm of the melody.
