About the piece
Harmonium, for electronics (2020), is an exploration of a microtonal scale based on the cycles of major thirds and perfect fourths in just intonation. I used the scale as a grid for mapping a region of Cellular Automaton 110, resulting in repetition of the harmonic pattern throughout a pitch space. The density of texture varies from a single tone to dense microtonal chords. A slow tempo provides time for observation of timbral micro-transformations of each vertical sonority.

Katarina Miljkovic is a Boston-based composer who investigates the interaction between science, music and nature through collaborative musical performance. This interest led her to the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot’s essay “The Fractal Geometry of Nature" and self-similar complex structures resulting in the cycle, Forest, “a dreamy piece, along the lines of Feldman or Brown, entirely captivating” (Signal to Noise). Her generative music has been described as “a refined, hypnotic dream” (Danas), “a work of musical and visual slow-motion with only a few delicately elaborated musical metaphors” (Radio Belgrade), and “ambient tone poem… that moved hypnotically through the sonic frame” (Lucid Culture).
