This piece, like the last one, is based on a sentence in a speech. I modified the rhythms by adding a few strategic rests, so that the emphasis is always on the down beat. I’ll add the speech itself in later. It’s scored for flute, vibraphone, finger piano, cello, dry spring, trumpet, and trombone. Tuning is shown in the table below:
The six note scale contains a just major third triad: 4:5:6. But it also contains another triad that is decidedly not so simple. I call it an E super major with a demented fifth.
