Music Composers Unite!

I accepted an invitation to write a short piece using only five unique chords.

Two things about this:

1. It uses substituted dominants based on flattened supertonics and

2. Apart from a couple of passing notes all the melody notes are from the “upper structure “ harmonics and not part of the chord.

Very interesting! And quite a unique flavor compared to your usual output. :-)

Very nice Michael, kind of a jazz ballad or Satie sound.  Would be neat to hear a chamber group develop that.

Intriguing to say the least. I agree with Ingo about the jazz-sounding progressions and chordal arrangement. Very cocktail bar, really. 

Easy to listen to, which I did without any pondering on the technical foundation.

Cheers.

This is like a benign (and very short) version of Satie's "Vexations".

It's nice. What will the purpose / application for it be, if it was a kind of commission?

It was requested by Marshall Shaw for his video https://youtu.be/rxU9gUzuj20
