Work Overview

This fugue began as a contemplation on three notes, E, F and B, which suggest an ambiguous harmonic world, and which have a proportional relationship with each other that can be balanced at the distance of a fourth or fifth, or wildly imbalanced depending on the root note. A series of independent melodic, rhythmic and harmonic modules are possible from the various numbers generated by these notes and intervals, which are further interpreted intuitively by exploring the chroma of the resulting combinations. The work is dedicated to the Australian composer and pedagogue Richard Vella.
