Dear list I'm sure there's a good answer to this and would be grateful for someone pointing it out, but what's wrong wiht saying that the grammar/rules concern how we hear music not how it is produced. That's what Lerdahl and Jackendoff said: "a generative grammar of music htat relates the aural surface of a piece to the musical structure unconsciously inferred by the experienced listener." - on the back cover of the book Roger Watt University of Stirling
