That was fun. I didn't make it through the whole thing, does she ever consider the verticality's effect on ordering ?

Btw, for a more sophisticated consideration of the master chromatic you might check out the music and writings of Stefan Wolpe.

Best,

Hello Dave, Sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure If I correctly understand your question, but she
does demonstrate how she turns "twinkle twinkle little star" into a 4-voice a capella 12-tone choir piece.
The vertical stacking of the notes is accomplished by constructing diagrams by
organizing notes on a circle and drawing certain patterns (stars mostly :) ) connecting those notes.
