The Harmonic Series is a compilation of musical works in Just Intonation created by three generations of contemporary composers who utilize this fascinating tuning system. A dense info booklet is inlcuded with notes from each artist. This compilation was curated over the span of two years by Duane Pitre. The goal of this compilation and its accompanying liner notes is to educate listeners about the origins and use of Just Intonation, as well as to portray the unique beauty of this tonal “color palette,” which is heard by relatively few in the Western world and explored by even fewer.

Although all the artists on the compilation work within the avant-garde/experimental genre, each artist lends something unique to the collection, and each employs a different approach toward how to utilize Just Intonation. Within The Harmonic Series you’ll find an array of instrumentation such as piano, cello, accordion, electronics, guitar, Ukelin, saxophone, violin, koto, and more.

The featured artists on The Harmonic Series are: Pauline Oliveros, Ellen Fullman, Charles Curtis, Michael Harrison, Greg Davis, R Keenan Lawler, Duane Pitre, Theresa Wong, and Zachary James Watkins.
