Thank you sir. Do you happen to know of any recent articles, or maybe even books. that talk about pop music aesthetics? I'm thinking like what an electronic remix of a Lana Del Rey song can do to a listener at the right moment and a few drinks deep. I unironically believe electronic and some rap can be incredibly beautiful. I realize how niche this is

Harmony, by Walter Piston
>>
>>7590333
haven't read it but kode9 (Sam Goodman) wrote a book called Sonic Warfare and is probably pretty close to what you're describing given his background

For western music theory Walter Piston's books on harmony & counterpoint are the best. Introduction to Post-Tonal Theory by Strauss (which also has lots of sources) and Schoenberg if yr interested in 20th century.

I also like Structure and Style: The study and analysis of musical forms by Leon Stein and I've heard good things abt Charles Rosen

If you want some REALLY heady aesthetics/philosophy of music shit get Being about Music by Boretz & Randall

Really interested in books about music theory. I was thinking about buying "The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis" but I'm not sure if its good.

Music theory.net is fantastic. Self-taught myself with that with a few other sites and music documentaries. Went from not even knowing what a chord was to having a very intuitive grasp of how music works
