    other notes’ origin, he calls them dissonant, and therefore outside of the “chord of nature’s” jurisdiction. Therefore, the only notes held responsible for harmonic series origin are the 1, 3, 5, and octave. The fifth is the 3rd harmonic, and is only 2 cents sharp. The octave rates even better—it is the second harmonic and has no pitch variance between the given overtone and its usage in tonal music. However, the third of the scale does not pass Keiler’s pitch variance comparison. As stated, the major third is 14 cents flat. Furthermore, Schenker fails to provide an explanation for minor tonality. The minor third is far further into the harmonic series limits, being the 19th harmonic. So, while Schenker does not claim the harmonic series to be the basis for the entire scale, he does apply it for the three notes of the major triad, and even this has fundamental issues. The other part of Schenker’s view that may help it escape Keiler’s criticisms is in the applications of the theory. While Bernstein was attempting to explain all of the world’s music, Schenker was describing only Western tonal music. Schenker recognizes a difference between Western and, as he calls it, “exotic” music. He claims that non-Western music strives for the intervals reached in tonal music, primarily the octave, fifth, and third, yet never really reaches these intervals, resulting in a lack of diatony (Schenker 11). Here, Schenker’s highly nationalistic, German-supremist view surfaces. Yet however…

    prophet named Teiresias tells King Oedipus of his tragic fate (Singerman, 126). In La Regle du jeu a theme of “blindness” continues, but in a different way. While the film is being built up for something tragic to happen, it is not until the end when Schumacher and Marceau mistakenly misidentify Christine and Octave for Jurieu and Paulette. They let their eyesight (blindness) deceive them, which brings about a tragic ending for Octave. While it is uncertain exactly how wealthy Octave really is…
