Conceptual definition

A 2013 electroacoustic piece that was created using the composer Henry Cowell’s theories (extensively used by other artists such as Conlon Nancarrow) brings the possibility of recreating the relationships between partials, through polyrhythms, in a series of harmonics. The piece does not always make this narrative evident, it includes a variety of methods, not only those related to tempo and rhythm but also those associated with bells and melodies. Most of the sounds heard in this piece are products of “found objects” (e.g. watch, scissors, silverware and coins), but it does also use more traditional musical  instruments (cowbell and piano).
