Sound in Time is the most fundamental definition of music. Beginning with an understanding of the harmonic series and its numeric implications we can begin to explore and create a seemingly endless but organized approach towards tuning systems, intervals, harmony, and temporal organization including polyrhythm and groove. Each student will create a personal lexicon that includes extended techniques, metaphors, and extra-musical inspiration. Through sharing these lexicons each student will create “tailor-made” improvisational scores for members of the class. There will be a final performance of these compositions.
