Orwellian Cameras (revised)

This is an orchestral piece composed in 13 note subset of 31 notes per octave called “Orwell”. The purpose of this piece was to study polyphonic voice leading in a microtonal context. It was realized via Sonar 8.5 and Garritan Personal Orchestra version 4.0 (aria) which accepts scala files directly. Here is a partial scoredatura in pdf.

There are flaws – for one the humanization isn’t as picky as it could be but as usual I have limited time so the result is more or less a sketch. This is a revised version of one released to the alternate tuning list back in the summer of 2010.
