Hey Friends, check out the "Nokia Fughetta"! (URL: https://soundcloud.com/zery...
) This is a 20-second adaptation of the Nokia Fugue (Op. 31) that I submitted to Ping!, a call for scores, organized by the Redshift Music Society. It was among the 15 entries that were selected to be recorded and recently programmed into a concert on August 10, 2014, in Vancouver BC. Thanks again to the Negative Zed Ensemble and Redshift Records. Hope there will be more events like this in the future.

I had the idea of doing a fugue on the Nokia Tune (the cell phone ringtone) for a while, but never got around to doing it until now. The subject is taken from the Nokia Tune. At first, it was a bit challenging to work out a good implied harmony for the melody since it kind of stays in the same tonality for its first half. So in the end, this is what I came up with. This fugue uses inversion and stretto.
