The Pulsivity/Resonance Project explores a dual concept of time and temperament through a set of pieces for re-tuned piano and saxophone. In this regard, a second goal is realized: to inspire balance between fixed (periodic) and fluid (pulsivic) temporalities. In practice, this gets related to the elasticity of Persian poetic meter – formulas for improvisation are composed for each musical artist’s own pulse to accelerate/decelerate in synchronistic harmony, resulting in transient resolutions of unpredictable beauty.

Each duo works from the same set of pieces that share a sonic palette of 8 re-tuned pitches.  Exploring such resonances, from a variety of interlocking temperaments and temporalities, should expand harmonic empathy beyond the music itself.
