The Bohlen-Pierce Symposium
First symposium on the Bohlen-Pierce scale, Boston, March 7 – 9, 2010
Kretz: Hoquetus II

Johannes Kretz: Hoquetus II (2009)

The composition “HOQUETUS II” uses a specially developed harmonic pitch system on the basis of the Bohlen-Pierce scale as implemented in the Bohlen-Pierce clarinets by Stephen Fox. The means of live electronics are used to emphasize the properties of this harmonic system and to make its correctness more evident to the listener.
