Kalin Kirilov lines the slow formation of a different harmonic process that constructed in 3 sorts of Bulgarian song: village track from the Thirties to the Nineteen Nineties, marriage ceremony track from the Seventies to 2000, and choral preparations (obrabotki) - creations of the socialist interval (1944-1989), popularized by means of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares. Kirilov classifies the various ways to concord and situates them of their old and cultural contexts, constructing new platforms for research. within the approach, he introduces a brand new approach for the categorization of scales.
