Composer Michael Harrison draws on a lifelong interest in Indian music and tuning systems to create his distinctive musical style. We hear his synthesis of digital and acoustic sound forms, "Tone Cloud I."

Tone Cloud I

Written for the San Francisco-based Del Sol Quartet, "Tone Cloud I" employs amplified material processed with live effects and combined with prerecorded media. The first of a four-part series, the work is heard on Harrison's recent album "Revelation: Music in Pure Intonation."
