Contrapuntal Elaboration of Static Harmony (CESH)

CESH occurs when a moving line provides counterpoint to a stationary, or static harmony.


The most common uses of CESH are below:

1. Found in many tunes including Feelings and My Funny Valentine.

2. James Bond Theme


From the CD, Gailey uses CESH which is similiar to the well known James Bond Theme but with a clever twist at the end.
