Comma 3 Oct 10
w/ Collective Urgency art zine
Comma 2000
Comma is a piece in which I use a looper and e-bow to create a drone with no articulation or attack. I then attempt to layer onto it a drone exactly one fifth higher, and then another, until I have traveled the entire circle of fifths (A E B F# C# G# D# Bb F C G D A). Because no power of three is equal to any power of two (ie no series of fifths can create a tone equal to any created by a series of octaves based on the same tone), the final A is slightly sharper than the initial. The interval between these two A notes is called a "comma". If I have performed adequately, there should be an audible difference between this final A and the original, which I play at the end, layering the two A notes against each other.

In practice, much of the musical value lies in what happens when I fail to create perfect intervals or create pure drones, as the various constructive and destructive interferences between frequencies create melodies and rhythms. However, even a perfectly performed version of Comma will have texture, as the overtones of each note interact with others'. Also, many of the notes are dropped an octave, which causes their fundamental tones to directly clash against predecessors (as for example G# against A).

Collective Urgency was an art zine created by Jesse Hoover and some friends of his. There were a bunch of reads and looks and listens.
