Neighbor Tones

  • Abstract

    Neighbor Tones was commissioned for performances at the Goethe Institute and the Jewish Historical Museum, both located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The idea behind the composition refers to phase changes when playing a single repeated note and frequency interference when playing notes that are too close to each other or that are "neighbors". This tones (most of the times a minor second), provide a complex spectrum upon which the violin phrases are constructed. Unsurprisingly, due to the fact that the composition is based on natural harmonics, the result is a tonal harmony that oscillates between E & B minor.
