Æther

Posted on Posted in Acoustic, Electronic, Music

Æther for string quartet and amplified difference tones. This is a drone piece in Just Intonation. The instruments are processed by the computer to amplify their difference tones: pitches naturally produced which are the difference between the frequencies of any two pitches.

Performed on 10/31/12 by the Orava String Quartet on Pendulum New Music at the University of Colorado.
