Kymotropic analyses of sinewave studies utilizing several harmonic ratios within the 36 tone subset of the 81 Lo Shu Tones. These experimental sound sketches represent preliminary studies for future compositions:Sound is commonly displayed as a wave on a 2-dimensional X-Y axis, a snaking path that portrays vibration propagating over time:
Sound, like the rest of our perceived, physical reality
encompasses a 3-dimensional space.
Sound travels around the X-axis, tunneling itself through time,
like avortex or a helix:
When a saxophone, or any other wind instrument is played,
a whirlwind is created within the cavity of the instrument.
Moreover, a microphone transforms sound into an
electric current that also oscillates.
revolving around it in orderly ellipses and circles.
Yet in reality the sun moves a tremendous distance—
three quarters of a million kilometers each day;
the sun moves rapidly through time and space as the
planets moving around it create a series of harmonic spirals.”-A.T. Mann
