Abstract : In this article, we present a set of musical transformations based on chord spaces representations derived from the Tonnetz. These chord spaces are formalized as simplicial complexes. A piece is represented in such a space by a trajectory. Spatial transformations are applied on these trajectories and induce a transformation of the original piece. These concepts are implemented in two applications, the software HexaChord and the Max object bach.tonnetz, respectively dedicated to music analysis and composition.
