music theory books

I am the sole author of  ‘El Arreglo Un Puzzle de Expresión Musical’ which was commissioned by the SGAE in 1997 and published in 2005 by Bosch Música, Barcelona.

Successfully completed an eight year project focussed on studying arranging and orchestration in Spanish, using a contemporary approach to modern trends and styles as well as impact voicing, linear writing, Latin music, making small bands sound big, string writing, vocal arranging, enhancing backgrounds and studio versus live recordings.

Developed an educational resource that satisfied the social need for understanding how music works in a contemporary group context where most melodic lines are created in a controlled improvised setting by explaining how to achieve projection without the need for amplification by specifically writing for the guitar and its accompaniment.

Established the concept of applying plain listening to music production which enabled instruments, melodies and harmonies to be heard in a manner that would not occur in a natural projection of the vibrant source.

Created the first complete text book ever written in Spanish that detailed arranging and orchestration which achieved great success in Spanish and Latin American markets as well as the United States and has become a standard reference in Spanish and Latin American conservatories, schools of music and university

A must! for composers.
By Jorge Costa on March 8, 2019

If you’re into composing and analize music for picture (and can read Spanish)
you’ll benefit a great deal reading/study to compliment other reference books about it.

Excelente texto
By Pablo Guaman Fernandez on October 9, 2019
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

Lo compré basándome en el índice pero luego de revisarlo me he quedado completamente satisfecho con los contenidos pues abarca de forma absolutamente ordenada, secuencial y completa cada una de las herramientas técnicas y creativas necesarias para realizar los mejores arreglos; y lo más importante siempre en el contexto de la música moderna. Los audios están muy bien logrados y resultan muy pedagógicos, especialmente en el capítulo sobre orquestación.
