    Program Notes

    Why 31-ED2?

    The story begins in 2006, when I wrote an Organ Prelude (in traditional 12-ED2); the piece had an unusual harmonic cadence, a minor Dominante with major seventh; while composing Psalms for the Earth in 2008 (a still unperformed choral work that won the Brazillian Music Academy composers' competition that year), I went back to that material and realized that this (minor, 7+) Dominant could be resignified as the 3:7:9:11 of the overtone series, which I employed in that work; that was the beginning of my work in Just Intonation.
    The 19-limit, Just-Intonation Meditation
    (a computer realization of part of the Organ Prelude) from 2009 employed a complex system where natural 19-limit intervals started at each of the 12-ED2 notes, generating some 120 pitches per octave 2:1 and only approximate enharmony. That remained a problem to be solved.
    Thus it was that, looking for a pratical way to employ these new (19-limit) harmonies, I came to the 31-note equal temperament in late 2014, realizing that it could approximate the natural ratios of the harmonic series up to the 23-limit with a maximum error of merely 10 cents – at the same time providing for enharmony, since the steps are equal.
    That brought me naturally to be aware of the Huygens-Fokker Foundation in Amsterdam, where the 31-tone Organ stands, build in the 50's by Adriaan Fokker – who rediscovered the theoretical work on 31-ED2 done by Christian Huygens in the late 1600's.
    From there came the idea of a concert with a new work and I was honored to take part in the foundation's Mikrofest that year, for which I wrote this Aphoristic Madrigal.

    Poetical Inspiration:

    Words and inspiration are given by a short, simple aphorism, which tries to make sense of the outer and the inner worlds of man:
    Earth – Mother
    Water – Love
    World – Mind
    Harmony – God
    The first concept of each binome is an outer reality, the second, an inner concept, condition or instance of man; the relation of both invites to reflection as to how we as people relate to the world. Do we really regard our planet Earth as our ever birth and life-giving Mother of mankind? Is the essential ressource Water maybe also neglected and misused just as Love is disregarded and distorted in our unbalancedly capitalist world? What is the World that our Minds are constructing and building every day? And how could we find God and Harmony among and between peoples as well as between mankind and its planet? Some crucial questions that I carry with me.

    The Music

    0:00 Earth = The overtone series builds up from the deep C, the voices alternate a Tonica (4:5:6)/Dominante (3:7:9:11) cadence, modulating (over the Dominant chord with 2 common notes) in a 9-step interval (C-E^-Av-C#); over a few bars a modulation leads back to C major with a quote from Zemlinsky's Lyric Symphony (Du bist mein Eigen, you are my own).
    2:08 Mother: a melacholic line develops around the 10 : 15 fifth and the 10:12:15 minor chord with 11, 12, 13 and 14 forming the melody; modulations over the 4-step interval (13 : 11 = 12 : 10).
    3:52 Water:Love = a diatonic sequence based on 1:12:15:18 (Dominante with Tonica pedal – or a Bass on 1 and upper harmony on 3) leads to split, bitonal textures of a bass pedal on 1 and upper harmony on the natural scale (limit 11) starting from 15; in Psalms for the Earth the music reflects the words from Psalm 148: Praise him, you highest heavens / and you waters above the skies.
    4:51 World:Mind = a perfect fifth (3 : 9) opens into a consonant 1:3:9:11 chord. Through (upper fifth) imitation the 9 : 11 (or 18 : 22) interval is piled up to a more dissonant 18:22:27:33 chord; successive imitation and piling up leads to two, mutually very dissonant chains (7- and 5-note respectively) of pure fifths (each chain perfeclty consonant in itself) exaclty a half-fifth apart (18/2=9 steps): the world, as build by an abstract mind, has led to conflict, but a compromise solution is to be found: 5 of those mutually dissonant notes can form a consonant chord, with a new fundamental note, which leads to
    6:20 Harmony:God = a study on enharmonic relations of 5 and 6 steps; three series of three consonant 19-limit chords of about 8 notes succeed each other, sharing 2 to 4 common notes.

    --------------
    Stell'auf den Tisch die duftenden Reseden,
    Die letzten roten Astern trag'herbei,
    Und lass uns wieder von der Liebe reden,
    Wie einst im Mai.

    Gib mir die Hand, dass ich sie heimlich drücke,
    Und wenn man's sieht, mir ist es einerlei;
    Gib mir nur einen deiner süssen Blicke,
    Wie einst im Mai.

    Es blüht und duftet heut'auf jedem Grabe,
    Ein Tag im Jahr ist ja den Toten frei,
    Komm'an mein Herz, dass ich dich wieder habe,
    Wie einst im Mai.
