Continental Rift

Overtone based microtonal compositions for bass, rhodes, pvc clarinet, and percussion.


Faisal Alisdairi is a composer and multi-instrumentalist living in Portland, OR. He has a diverse, patchwork education encompassing music, math, and sculpture. He is a classically trained player and self-taught producer.

He uses math and physics to provide a rigorous microtonal framework within which to compose and play. Minimalism is used to clearly convey the timbre created by these unique cadences.

It is his goal with this album to deprogram reliance on the equal temperament and work for a greater depth of harmonic development that is often missing from microtonal music.
