“‘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.”
release comprises an archival CD-R with realizations of «Endless Overtones
in Relational Space» for violin, ensemble, and piano; copies of the notated
score for each of the three versions; an accompanying text to guide
performance; two drawings by Evans-Weiler, giving
