Frozen Time Occupies Wall Street is an improvisation using a tuning suggested by Peter ‘Rush’ Kosmorsky on the Facebook Xenharmonic Alliance. I tried two things before I improvised – I found the pseudo-octave and I have to report it really DID sound to me like an octave even though you will see in the tuning below it is 3/1 not 2/1. And I played what would be a C major 7th which forms the major harmonic motive of the piece. I modified Pianoteq to give long sustains and very harmonic strings (10 foot strings) with high unpredictability of harmonic content.
