Three pieces of music: Temper Temper Time, Shepard, and Faux-Java Blues form a set that exploits experimental applications of unusual musical features: 5/4 tempo relationships and quintuple divisions; tempo spirals and expanded rock harmony and voice leading; and Indonesian/Western hybridity respectively. Elements of my compositional aesthetic, process, history, knowledge, and skills have contributed to the composition of these pieces, including the influence of popular music, Javanese music, recording technology, and tuning theory.
