After a break from composing I have started two pieces: a quartet and a piece for chamber orchestra. Both use a new system of harmony I've developed based on the workings on the German Enigma machine. After selecting an intervalic pattern for the piece, these are entered on to the three wheels of the Enigma app I had developed for me. A note is entered and the three wheels produce a triad based in their current interval selection. When the next note is entered the first wheel moves to its second position/interval. As with the German Enigma machine the second wheel moves on one position when the first wheel had completed a revolution, the third wheel is attached to the second in the same way. A trial yesterday revealed that the resultant harmony generated sounds homogenous.
