MORGAN EVANS-WEILER «ENDLESS OVERTONES IN RELATIONAL SPACE»

“‘Endless Overtones in Relational Space’ is a modular score intended to create further scores and investigations into a simple idea. Any individual desiring to realize the piece may create their own personal score that explores any number of dissonant connections between fundamental pitches and their overtones.

For this disc, I created three different realizations: two with solo instruments and sine tones, and one with an ensemble of instruments. The versions for solo instruments and sine tones are minimal to the point that the listener can clearly hear the relations being explored. During the ensemble performances, the connections are often obscured and made increasingly complex through the addition of instrumental overtone spectrums.

The concept of this piece can be infinitely extrapolated and used in any means that the performer(s) desire.  It can be combined with other ideas and developed into further pieces. My recent research has led to the creation of pieces that utilize this technique in juxtaposition with other compositional approaches and techniques.”
