Quarter-Tone Dissertation

Example 1.10

Charles Ives, Three Quarter-Tone Pieces, Mvt. II, Allegro, mm. 3-6 (transcribed)

In this example, I've taken the passage from Example 1.1 and renotated it on a single grand staff using quarter tone accidentals. In this transcription, you can more easily see the voice-leading connections in the bass line and how the large chords in the right hand stack up. This notation is great for analysis, but impractical for performance.
