13-96 in this volume)--Tenney was able to critique and transform the parametric conception and organization of sound of his nearly contemporaneous Darmstadt peers, utilize and suppress the influence of Hugo Riemann in his conception of the "clang" as the foundation of the perceptual unit of music, absorb and apply Gestalt psychological principles to music, and conceive a robust theory of music.
Stamic's works were duly included in these music-history editions owing to Hugo Riemann (1849-1919), one of the most influential German music theorists of the time.

In his 1854 lecture On the Hypotheses which lie at the Bases of Geometry, Riemann set the ground for an ambitious research agenda onto the mathematical conceptualizations of space, corresponding to his formal introduction of the concept of manifold with a Riemann metric:

It is worthwhile to notice that the initial data (2) may be regarded as the specific small perturbations of the corresponding Riemann initial data:
Concretely, the metric tensor, the determinant of metric matrix field, the Christoffel symbols, and Riemann tensors on the 3D domain are expressed by those on the 2D surface, which are featured by the asymptotic expressions with respect to the variable in the direction of thickness of the shell.
