Over:unitY // Dance Music for the Multiverse!

Announcing: Over:unitY

As discussed in A New Musical Scale. I have been working on a collection of compositions employing the (what I believe to be) unique justly intoned scale:

\begin{equation*} \left [ 1, \quad \frac{9}{8}, \quad \frac{5}{4}, \quad \frac{21}{16}, \quad \frac{3}{2}, \quad \frac{7}{4}, \quad \frac{15}{8}, \quad 2\right ] \end{equation*}

Perhaps I'm too close to the project to be objective, but I'm pleased with the results.

The album consists of seven tracks of instrumental music with a rhythmic content. Most of the compositions employ the full heptatonic scale, although a few of them employ hexatonic and pentatonic derivatives.

The Buzz

Just so that you understand the full import of this release, here's the tastefully overblown marketing blurb:

Over:unitY is the new album by composer, theorist, and artist Mark Conway Wirt. Using classical sacred Greek mathematics to create unique, new scales and tunings, this is music like you've never heard it before. At times sparse, at times lush -- but always engaging -- the music will seep into you like the early morning mist rising from the Appalachian foothills from which the artist hails. The compositions on this release represent the culmination of years of exploration of the ways that sound can be harmonized and combined, investigating and transcending the unexamined sonic assumptions that have saddled Western popular music since the Renaissance.

Over:unitY is dance music for the multiverse!
