Chromatic Congruence




A project about expanding and create new combinations in the use of major/minor harmony by creating new harmonic progressions within it.

A technique that allows highly improvisational and at the same time builds on a solid structure that continuously drives harmony. The chord progression has no final chords, It is a progressive harmonic structure that constantly shifts key and yet escapes the classical chord progressions that are usually associated with the concept of functional harmony. Ground notes are always temporary and elusive. It is the movement between the different keys that are fundamental in the structure. Accordingly it is possible to work with different types of chords depending on the results you want. Right now, I'm working with a four note chord that moves chromatically by constantly changing the inversion to make a smooth transition into the following key. The idea of looking at the different steps of this sequence as keys instead of chords is that each key also contains all the other notes that belongs to it.

The conclusion of the project:

The various musical materials generated during the work will result in a collection of music pieces under the umbrella term Chromatic Congruence.
