Notes & Reviews:

The Harmonic Series is a compilation of musical works in Just Intonation created by three generations of contemporary composers who utilize this tuning system. The compilation, curated over the span of two years by Duane Pitre, has the goal of educating listeners about the origins and use of Just Intonation as well as portraying the unique beauty of this tonal "color palette," which is heard by relatively few in the Western world and explored by even fewer. Although all the artists on the compilation work within the avant-garde or experimental genres, each lends something unique to the collection.
