And Wait…. Wait….

And Wait… Wait… is a musical setting of Basil Bunting reading his poem “Now We’ve No Hope” read in 1979 thanks to PennSound. The music uses 3 instances of Z3TA+ 2.1 in “Devil’s Staircase” tuning and two percussion tracks. The Devil’s Staircase tuning came from a discovery my son Ben made on the Wolfram site of the Devil’s Staircase function after some research prompted by our introduction to György Ligeti’s piano piece Devil’s Staircase -look to the 2nd entry – (L’escalier du diable).

Here is the tuning I used:
