Additional Information

Inspired by the number of years it takes for each planet in our solar system to orbit around the sun, I transferred each planets’ approximate orbit into a material framework that served as the foundation of piece – chords that invert at different rates according to which planet the chord corresponds to, creating an iso-rhythmic effect. The framework then became the impetus to create additional textural layers, giving the piece small changing and alternating gestures.
