This piece was a sonic experiment, tuned to 432Hz. It's been said that music tuned to 432Hz (as opposed to music tuned to the standard 440Hz) is more natural and harmonious with nature. Where 440Hz tuning is said to seem more harsh and aggressive feeling. So, I tuned this song to 432Hz. Each separate instrument was tuned to 432Hz. All midi tracks were tuned at the synthesizer itself. In the case of patches with multiple layered voices, each voice, or layer of the patch, was tuned down 8 cents from it's original tuning. That way the intended harmony or dissonance of the layered voices to each other and to the universe remained intact. All analog recordings were also tuned to 432Hz.

Thank you for your support. Creating music has become a consuming passion of mine. I love creating a piece of music from a blank slate, allowing it to take me where it wants to go, and discovering and creating new and interesting sounds along the way. I hope you enjoy my music. I also write and record blues rock with the group Twelve Above. ... more
