Quizzes

This randomly generated multichoice quiz tests your knowledge of Neo-Riemannian triadic transformations. It tests the 4 main operations of L, P, R and S, and also adds David Kopp's extensions, M, m, F and D.

DEFINITIONS

  • L = Leichtonwechsel (root change = major third, mode change)
  • P = Parallel (no root change, mode change)
  • R = Relative (root change = minor third, mode change)
  • S = SLIDE (root change = semitone, mode change)
  • M = chromatic mediant (root change = major third, no mode change)
  • m = chromatic mediant (root change = minor third, no mode change)
  • F = fifth (root change = perfect fifth, mode change)
  • D = dominant (root change = perfect fifth, no mode change)
  • The test is timed from when you start. You should be aiming to complete this test in under 4 minutes.

    0–2 mins = Professional  2–4 mins = Good  4–6 mins = Average  6–8 mins = Sluggish  8 mins or more = Too slow.
