It's the same as all other harmony. Surround yourself with skulls and candles if it helps.

What?


He's right. Stravinsky also made all his own instruments, never developed themes, and use to ride a bicycle while conducting the orchestra. It's all there in the score of "Le Sacre du Printemps" (The Sacred Temporary Print-Workers).

Unless I'm mistaken, Stravinsky wrote the Rite of Spring on a bet that he couldn't make music sound good without melody.
If I'm wrong, with me good luck, I'm failing my music history class.


EDIT: I see how I misworded my original post.
I should have said Stravinsky wrote quite a bit of music without melody.
That came out as a comment on his entire works, I apologize.

"Stravinsky gave contradictory accounts of the genesis of The Rite."

To be honest that sounds more like a misrepresentation of Schoenberg's music, but what the hey.
