Will Derrick May publish his new theory on music theory? There’s 4 days until we find out…

If you’re wondering what on earth I’m on about, the background to this post can be found here.

Now that you’re up to date, I thought I’d provide a progress report on the gauntlet laid down in that post, published six days ago. I challenged Derrick May to provide evidence that he could indeed play an instrument in a different key to the others in a song and still sound good.

With just four days to go, I’m disappointed to report that May has not yet completed the challenge. Let’s hope that he gets on the case very soon.

There’s a nice, warm apology on its way to you if it happens, Mr May!
