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).
