Description of Echometry
Echometry for. "Echometry" (Ehos + Metron = Sound + Measure) Echometry is a TEACHING SYSTEM that makes Music EASY to UNDERSTAND... a METHOD that shows how SIMPLE the different Chords-Scales and Modes are on the Echometric Wheel. A "Sound Cell" is what you see on your screen. It is made up of twelve consecutive sounds usually referred to as an "octave" or "chromatic scale". ALL EQUAL = TWELVE =12/12 The revolutionary system that explains the interaction between the human brain and the sound of any melodic musical instrument! An "Ear Training-Music Writing" tool, including both A-B-C and DO-RE-MI teaching systems in ALL seven octaves. A "Signature Wheel" for ALL the Greek Modes, a perfect Vocal Instructor, an Instant Composer among other things, all literally under your fingertips! WELCOME and ENJOY it! The different names (Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, etc.) are what Music Schools call Diatonic Scales or Modes. They are either Heptatonic (7/12) or Pentatonic (5/12). Add 7 + 5 (Heptatonic + Pentatonic) and the mother of ALL scales, the Chromatic scale, is created! Echometry suggests that our brain enjoys the twelve notes by braking them into two groups: 1) The Heptatonic-Diatonic SEVEN (7/12) and 2) The Pentatonic FIVE (5/12). The "left-over" notes of a Heptatonic-Diatonic (7/12) scale are the notes of the most treasured scale in the world: The "PENTATONIC". ECHOMETRY bears the rights to the CORRECT answer to the eternal question: Why does MAJOR-RED = HAPPY and MINOR-GREEN = Melancholic? WHY are certain 'chords' DISSONANT? Soon to be published along with a lot of revealing facts about "MUSIC". The Echometer is an amazing instructional tool that simplifies learning music. By utilizing colors and patterns arranged in a circle with twelve dots, one for each note, the student has an immediate visual connection with the notes in a scale, while at the same time seeing that scale harmonized clearly, displayed with a set of color-coded dots to show which chords should be major, minor, diminished or augmented, in any given key. Echometry took over 35 years to become reality and is the result of the aspirations of Alex A. Sioris, 58 years old who lives in Los Angeles, California and owner of Marina Music Center for over 21 years. An accomplished musician and theorist, Alex created a NEW method of learning the secrets of sound utilizing both VISUAL and AUDIO techniques thus MAKING MUSIC SIMPLE!.
