Today's piece is one I wrote, called Subduction Zone. It is scored for Alto Flute, Bass Clarinet, Guitar, Marimba, Finger Piano, and Percussion. It is based on four chords in the Partch Tonality Diamond: F 4/3 minor; A 8/5 major; C 1/1 major; and A 5/3 minor. There are many notes in common between these scales, and many more that are only slightly different. The subduction takes place where the differences lie.

For complete details about the piece, please see my web site here. The title comes from the geological phenomenon when two tectonic plates converge, and one goes under the other.
