Movement 4: Harmonic Synthesis (Fekete) (Tuning EEEEEE, amps facing forward) Tuning the strings of each guitar to the same note and then playing open forces focus on the subtle overtones brought on by differing string timbres and tensions. By piling on rhythmic fourths and fifths and randomly plucked harmonics, the resulting additive and subtractive harmonics produces an illusion of near-symphonic complexity: The ear hears far more notes - and even types of instruments - than are actually being played.
