This is new piece based on a work I did in 2002 called the Tsantsa Circle Dance. That one was scored for flute, finger piano, tuba, trombone, violin, cello, guitar, double bass, and percussion. The chord progression made use of a set of scales from the 15-limit tonality diamond. Today’s is scored for Prent’s Microtonal Slide Bosendorfers, and uses the 31-limit tonality diamond. This is just a beginning, and I’ll work on including more of the progressions used in the original, and work some of the rough parts in the near future.
Tsantsa is a native South American Indian term for shrunken heads. It’s a dance number. Or the original was.
