Program Notes

The Inaudible Do is an homage to Percy Aldridge Grainger's classic The Immovable Do. Whereas a C is always present throughout Grainger's piece, The Inaudible Do consciously avoids the note C until the final three measures, despite being in C major throughout the piece (though also briefly in A minor). The deception required to feel in the key of C Major/A minor is accomplished by implied chords, resonant spacings, and frequent use of extended tertian harmonies.
