Perfect for String Noise

By Dean Rosenthal


I.5: Together


In Perfect for String Noise, the duo String Noise gradually completes a rhythmic line of 60 beats with 15 different and unique 4-note rhythmic motifs in a logical process known as rhythmic tiling. Each motif is introduced by the subsequent chromatic pitch beginning on F natural until the entire chromatic is filled, after which the remaining 3 pitches double the first 3 at the octave. Once the line is completely tiled and all 60 beats have been filled, the resulting melody is played either in unison or as a hocket.
