THEORY PILLS #1 Negative harmony

Updated: Feb 4, 2021

i try to explain negative harmony with a photo.

You have to take the c major scale and subdivide it in stables notes(they don't need to resolve) and active note (need to resolve in stables notes)

Then subdive the octave between E and Eb and you find the point 2

apply this "opposite" note on C major scale and you will find the C minor! The stable note in C major, will stay  stables in C minor. Same to actives notes

Apply that to th harmonization of C major scale and you will find the negative harmonization of C major!

Then you can substitute chords from C major to their negative form

I hope this can help you,
