Incomplete Hexany Chord Catalogue (9:11:13:15) is a multimedia piece inspired by composer Tom Johnson’s piece “Chord Catalogue,” which explores a microtonal tuning system devised by Erv Wilson called a Hexany. This video was made with Unity and Pure Data. It plays through all possible 2-note chords, 3-note chords, 4-note chords, and 5-note chords, followed by the complete 6-note scale all at once.
Over the last 7 years, Daniel Corral has developed a live performance practice featuring electronics and live-feed video. He has recently been exploring how to incorporate real-time animation into his work.
