Harmonics 12 to 30 in 15

Calculated Electron Orbitals

I have been exploring Sonar X1 and one of the ideas on my list was to apply the apreggiator to a piece of music that was classical and used the harmonic series – just sounded like a good idea. Well, here is the realization of that idea. Using pianoteq 3.6 and Sonar X1 I recorded an improvisation with arpeggiator at eight notes and 2 octaves and a BPM of 60. I used a 15 note tuning with harmonics 12 to 30 reduced to an octave – and then repeated for every octave. The arpeggiated notes are purposefully quieter in order to provide a “cloud” of notes in support of the main themes.

  1. […] am honored that one of my compositions, Harmonics 12 to 30 in 15, was selected for inclusion on this […]

  2. Just stumbled upon this as I’m studying for a electrical engineering license exam….very fascinating….have you heard Jaco Pastorius’ “Portrait of Tracy”? It’s a solo bass playing almost entirely in harmonics…he was a pioneer. Thought you might like it…..

    Yes I have heard that excellent piece – and the several covers done on youtube as well. Thank you for pointing out that excellent piece!
