Progressive Evolution

Melodic: the passage from tone to tone;
Harmonic: the passage from chord to chord.
Volumetric or Geometric Progression: from volume to volume.
Sometimes called Cascade.

There are two kinds of progression, melodic or harmonic. Speaking in general terms, the former (Melodic Progression) is a "succession of sounds forming a tune or melody" but the term is also applied to an "imitative succession of melodic phrases" that is to a melodic sequence. Harmonic progression is "the movement of one chord to another" and is diatonic or chromatic. The term is also sometimes used as synonymous with sequence. [Dictionary of Musical Terms]

Progressive Disintegration
"The question arises, how and by what means are we able to measure the velocity of these capsules and the differential range of their vibratory action? Also, how can we prove beyond dispute the facts relating to their sympathetic government? By progressive disintegration; this is the only way; and it is accomplished by the proper exciters of vibratory focalization; the introductory acoustic impulses which negatize their molecular, atomic and interatomic media of neutral attractions, towards their focalized centers of sympathetic aggregation." [Keely in Keely and His Discoveries]

Progressive Evolution of Overtones
Harmonic, partial or overtone generation from a keynote or fundamental. [See Evolution]

Law of Harmonic Pitch
"Any aggregate in a state of vibration develops in addition to its fundamental pitch a series of vibration in symmetrical sub-multiple portions of itself, bearing ratios of one, two, three, or more times its fundamental pitch." [Keely See Law of Cycles]

Digressive Devolution of Undertones
Development of undertones from a fundamental.

Law of Harmonic Vibrations
"All coherent aggregates are perpetually vibrating at a period-frequency corresponding to some harmonic ratio of the fundamental pitch of the vibrating body; this pitch is a multiple of the pitch of the atomole." [Keely See Law of Cycles]
