Entry notes
This is a piece uses sequenced samples in various harmonic series segments that tries to evoke a sense of the tragedy of post modern contemporary temporal musical displacement within a larger structure of the implication of instantaneous quantum entanglement with spooky action at a distance as informed by Schoenberg’s theory of tonal harmonic regions taken to the obvious xenharmonic conclusion as a partial differential solution to the problem of American political polarization. Please use ears.

Additional notes added today:
The tuning is a 24 note harmonic series segment suggested by Denny Genovese for the piano and the Kontakt provided over / undertone series tuning preset for the choir. The short length was a result of the requirement that the submission was to be less than or equal to 60 seconds long. Note that this was a microtonal piece that made its way into a conventionally tuned 12 equal set.
