Music is a sketch of "Sterope" (one of the 7 sisters in the Pleiades) part of my cycle "The Stars of the Constellations" -even though it says Maia in the video (I changed my mind after researching the mythology). This one has a 9th Century Eastern quality to it.
The music is based on a multitrack experiment using a very old pitch pipe I still have. It is a resonance study, using my mouth to change the harmonic overtone structure of the pipe. Sometimes 1, 2 or 3 tracks going in and out of phase with each other; setting up the basic drone. Halfway through I bring in low fundamentals (some sung through the pitch pipe and some not). After 40 years, or so, the 5ths were not perfectly in tune (by 12 tone equal temperament's standard). This is more or less the intro to the piece. Made with Garage Band.
