Quick Win #27

Put any Vertical Structure through an RC or RP

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • create more related musical material out of your initial idea; it's always great to expand on one element before you bring in new ideas
  • you can use proper voice-leading (VL) or even substitute voice-leading (SVL)
  • transform some of the structures into horizontal lines later and combine them with the other elements into bigger building blocks


Depending on the register, you might want to assign different instrument sections to your structures, which you've created via the RC or RP. You don't even have to stick to your RC, and you may change any note later to your liking.
