D’ni Music Theory

While the Ae’Gura Concert Hall archives have yielded some interesting finds in the area of music performance and composition, its holdings on music theory are comparatively meager, at least at this point in conservation efforts. Below is an attempt to piece together the scraps of information that have been recovered to date; there are significant gaps that have sometimes been left blank, sometimes filled in when logically suggestive. As recovery efforts proceed, more will be learned and errors corrected where they inevitably have occurred.

I. Harmonics
    i. Legendary origins
    ii. Major and minor intervals

II. Notation
