Mark J. Herrick formerly worked as the technical illustrator in the Chemistry Department at Michigan State University.
He was also in a rock band called; The Grains of Sand.
At work, Mark would see the Periodic Table of Elements on the walls of the labs. This chart inspired him to research music and try to build an applied harmony reference chart. After 40 years of working on various music charts, he discovered a unique design that produced simple box patterns as music formulas.
After several years of refining this chart, Herrick patented it as the Harmony Matrix®. At the core of the Harmony Matrix® design is the UNIVERSAL "E" MUSIC CODE. The "E" is three independent lines with four Sound-color™ boxes in each line. It looks like an "E".
When the Sound-c0lors are in this unique order they represent

The "E" condenses, simplifies and connects the applied harmony music system. This new music theory is the basis for "The Vision of Harmony Project" whose goal is to inspire musicians of all ages to discover the wonderful world of harmony.
