THIS IS THE OLD DEMO MENU. These versions may work better on some machines but midi is not fully supported on all machine/browser combinations. For the new versions then press NEW DEMO MENU.

Please refer to the Test Page to confirm that the graphics are working correctly in your environment.

To get the most from these demonstrations move the pointer over each lowest level syntactic element on the parsing diagram in turn. For example: Static Harmony ..... Dynamic Harmony ..... Chord V ..... Chord I. The descriptions for each element are different on each demonstration and should be read carefully.

Make sure each demo is fully downloaded before pressing "START"

Don't move the pointer whilst the demo is playing. If you do this, then press the reload button to recover or wait until the music has ended.
