I take trip through Shoom after Keenan Lawler mentioned it, and I found I actually had it installed. It is a superb microtonal aware synthesizer that is also a controller. My tour is a bit leisurely and only goes into a bit of what this program can do. It is highly recommended. It was $5.99 when it was first released, currently I believe the app store price is $9.99 – still quite affordable. The noise you hear in places are the actual (and unusual) preset settings of the app.

For Mark L. Vines – Cloudy Moon 2 a new improvisation.
Lovingly, Kavena is written for a picture of a woman in my grandparent’s family photo album. Not sure what the relationship was. Perhaps Kavena could have been my grandmother but ultimately was not. Or perhaps she was just a close friend. In either case this piece is for distant memories in 17 note per octave tuning using my DIY 17 note per octave midi controller.
Animated score – view full sized for best results.
