Trio Scordatura specializes in microtonally tuned music. For every one
of the fourteen stanzas of the poem and for the wordless middle, I
created a tuning in a different just intonation universe, giving each
stanza its own harmonic color. Click here
for technical details about the tuning and manner of playing, as well as
the poem's full text and a translation into Dutch.
In 2015, Trio Scordatura played the piece in the Van Abbemuseum in
Eindhoven, with myself replacing the late Bob Gilmore on keyboard. The
recording presented here is of that performance.
The poem and its translation were printed in a beautiful limited edition
