John Baez

Click the box to download Tethys, a piece I made using Greg Egan's QuasiMusic program, which translates quasicrystals into sound. For this one I used a mode consisting of root, major second, minor third, augmented fourth, perfect fifth, major sixth, minor seventh, and octave. The unsettling harmonic progressions that were created seem to balance on the edge of bliss and terror.
