this track is in four tempi and four tunings: 12, 19, 31, and 53, each with a limited 9-note set and a gamut of over 30 microtonal pitches. Although centric to two tonal centers C and A, this work is more atonal and features repetitive rhythmic behaviors related to fractals representing dimensions 1 through 4. Composed in 2012. This is a midi realization and the live version will be far different and more colorful.
