15 Zwiefache

transzendiert für Gitarre

Each harmonic chord is the result of a transformation process of pitch and duration onto each other, so that the original folkdance melodies which are the basis of the piece become trancended. The dances have changing metres, that explains the name Zwiefache (double metres). The empty strings of the guitar represent the six diatonic pitches of these dances, without the seventh (the leading tone in c-major). e-a-d-g-c-f. The harmonics 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th, represent the durations which the dance melodies are made of:

Each chord is the sum of pitch and duration projection of one bar.
