I have a background 1 year of harmony study and I'm now taking a non-western modal approach to music (trough Indian Classical Music, which is mainly monophonic and have no concept of harmony). I have some ideas to compose melodies in two or three voices (wich, as I said, doesn't exist in ICM) and I want to study counterpoint for exploring that further without entering again in the harmony terrain (I've discarded it for now, chords and harmonic functions don't appeal much to me right now).
As someone pointed me out in a answer to another question:
You are on the right track in thinking that "sixteenth century counterpoint melody or modal based (as this answer suggests) and eighteenth century counterpoint harmony based."
Where do I start to study counterpoint from a melodic (ie, melodies interaction) point of view without harmony?
