- The études in Set Theory for Improvisation Ensemble Method: Hexatonic 027 027 gave me many ideas on how 027 027 melodies can be developed. Very unusual phrasing I also find intreging.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a modern a way to improvise. S. Polly
- Sonic Resource Guide and Set Theory for Improvisation Ensemble Method: Hexatonic 027 027 have been my main practice tools lately. If you haven’t checked out the trichord combination of 027 027 as a vehicle for improvisation then you are really missing out on something that is awesome. A similar sound to playing in fourths but much more elegant and using the trichords for chordal accompaniment will certainly turn some heads. If you want to make your playing more contemporary then don’t overlook these books. G. Lee
- For me the application of Bruce Arnold’s concepts for modern improvisation have opened up a whole new world for me. Before finding his Sonic Resource Guide and the Set Theory books I really thought that everything that could be said had been said. Boy was I proven wrong. The Set Theory books showed me examples of how to improvise with various pitch class sets. It also is killer sight reading material. Each exercise shows you a different way to combine the 027s. Some times its completely inside type of lines and sometimes it in and out of the key center. I highly recommend these books if you dig the contemporary sound. Y. Kocher.
