About Gamut

Gamut is the peer-reviewed online journal of the Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic. A journal of criticism, commentary, research, and scholarship, Gamut seeks submissions focusing on any aspect of music theory and its cognate disciplines.

Focus and Scope

The increasing diversity of topics in, and approaches to, theory and analysis opens the way for articles of interest to a wider online audience. In an effort to broaden the topics and music-theoretical and analytical ideas presented in Gamut, we especially encourage submissions from authors whose knowledge of other disciplines can contribute to musical understanding.

While we are happy to accept submissions of a traditional nature, dealing with such topics as Schenkerian or Transformational Theory, we are also excited to receive submissions dealing with new theoretical and analytical concepts. These might concern music of different non-Western regions (e.g., India, the Middle-East, or South America) or musical genres from popular culture (e.g., rock, country, or hiphop).

About VOL Journals

Gamut is published by the Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic and made available in partnership with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville Libraries. New issues are posted as soon as they are completed, providing exceptionally current access to research and ideas.

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville Office of Research (http://www.utk.edu/research/) provided start-up funding for Gamut in 2006 with a SARIF grant for web page design, software for musical notation display, and student assistance, and the journal was one of the first published by UT's Newfound Press. Today the journal is one of many Open Access VOL Journals hosted by UT Libraries.

We encourage research librarians to list this journal among their library's electronic journal holdings.
