alive3times4:37am: Polychords and hello
Hello, I'm Edward, I'm new here.

I have a question for you, fellow theorykids:
Does anybody find practical use for polychords?
If you're working in a diatonic context, anyway, any 'polychord' can be more easily be thought of as an extended single chord. For example, combine both the root triad and its fifth triad, and you have a major 9th chord on the root. Add every diatonic triad for each note of a diatonic scale and you end up with [the root's major 13 chord, the second's minor 11 natural 13 chord, the fourth's major 13#11 chord, etc.].
Is there a practical use anybody knows of for polychords, or is it only suitable for adventures in bitonality and dissonance experiments?
What do you think?

caitlin451:39pm: Perfect Pitch
Hi All,
Thought someone mihgt be interested in this, since it has to do with theory. Hope it's okay to post promotions.

Do you wish you had perfect pitch? DO you know someone who does? Do you want to know more about it? Do you ever question what it's like for people who have perfect pitch, people who can pull notes out of thin air? Well, if any of these things apply to you, or you are just feeling like joining, hop on over to
and see what the fun's all about!
Hope to see you there!

themournfulduck1:24am: Hello... if anyone cares, I have just joined this community.
If nobody cares, I'll probably leave.

I like theory. I'm fifteen years old, I play piano.

Thank you.
