Duet

for two different guitars

refretted in 11-limit just intonation


Duet (2019)

Duet is written for two guitars in two different 11-limit just intonation tuning systems: the Lou Harrison Just Intonation Resophonic guitar and a nylon string classical guitar in a tuning system I devised named “Daisy”. Duet explores the 22 tones available within these combined tuning systems, an approach to time that exists outside of the temporal grid of bar lines, and playing techniques that mimic the harp.
