Description: Musical set theory encompasses the notion of defining sets of pitches and organizing music around those sets and their various manipulations. The site offers a Java applet that allows you to manipulate pitch class sets: play them, rotate and invert them, calculate normal and prime forms, calculate Forte numbers and Interval Class Vectors, transpose and invert them, and generate and manipulate matrices for them. Also includes a history and explanation of set theory, and applet instructions, downloads, and source code.
