Yes, Mike, that's what I understand regarding 12-tone serial composition.

BTW, I listened to some YouTubes of of Josef Hauer and really liked his music. Thank you for turning me onto him. I especially liked his "Nomos Opus 19" and I'll be adding his music to my collection.

Keep on pickin'!
Glenn

For fun and enlightenment on the subject of dodecaphonic music, see Vi Hart's YouTube presentation on the subject, Twelve Tones, which has accumulated almost 3.4 million views in the last six years:

She is sharp, funny, and multi-talented - composing, playing and singing various musical examples, and illustrating on paper for the camera in real time most of what she's talking about. It's quite good.

Speed warning for baby boomers: she talks as fast as your twenty-something year old child or grandchild.

I love her videos, John.

There is another jazz artist, named John O'Gallagher, who is a terrific alto player/composer/band leader and he has really broken through with 12-tone improvisation. He wrote a terrific book about it called Twelve-tone Improvisation: A Method For Using Tone Rows In Jazz. I have the book, but it is a little over my head in the sense that really is long, dedicated process to integrate.

He also recorded a CD called The Anton Webern Project which anyone interested should check out.

I seem to recall it was an earlier post of yours on this forum, some years ago, that got me on to him. I have his book on 12-tone improvisation, and have worked on the material to some extent, on piano. I think it has a lot of potential. I've recently resumed classical piano study with a teacher, so am moving more slowly on jazz-related stuff at present, but someday . . .

I've run across that, but don't remember much about it. Webern's Piano Variations is the only piece of that genre that I've played - I really like it, especially Gould's later video performance of it:
