World Out Of Tune

Friday, October 15, 2004

World Out of Tune festival composer Jon Catler stops by the studio to present works by some of this year’s festival composers; La Monte Young, Elodie Lauten, Neil Haverstick and others. The festival is a series of concerts and broadcasts in Harmonic Series Tuning, a system using intervals occurring in Nature, which fall in between the notes of the traditional man-made European system of tuning. On this edition of New Sounds, hear excerpts from Elodie Lauten’s Harmonic Protection Circle – a work of improvisation within a framework, as the performers react to the resonance of just intonation overtones and the various patterns unfolding with the consonance and dissonance. Also, hear music from La Monte Young, one of the world's leading experts on Natural Music, and from Catler’s own overtone power trio of fretless and just intonation guitar, fretless bass, and drums.
