Project Title: Webern Variations recording project

Project Description: Anton Webern’s “Concerto for Nine Instruments” from 1922 is a groundbreaking work in the history of mathematics in music. I plan to explore the potential of the musical and mathematical concepts of the work by creating and recording ten alternate versions of the piece using different generative trichords.
