Harmonic Points Converging in Loops of Self Similarity

by Steve Kornicki

A composition for six guitars...two instruments played in a percussive manner while the remaining four play looping points of sound in self similar rhythms each using a pitch structure of a 12-tone row unfolding gradually across the expanding soundscape.

Album Notes
The piece continues my exploration of the relation between self similarity and music. "Harmonic Points Converging in Loops of Self Similarity" developed from a planned improvisation. Initially, four twelve tones rows were created (one row per melodic line) with the pitches of the rows vertically aligned to create tonal harmonies. I improvised each guitar part in succession according to a pre-determined rhythmic pattern for each line repeating these patterns for each pitch of the row. Thus, the title reflects the nature of the compositional process - rhythmic, self similar loops that coalesce creating gradually expanding tonal harmonies resulting from the textural layering of the rows. An unfolding soundscape of harmonic combinations and rhythms results.
