Puremonics is short for pure harmonics. Many of these pieces use pure harmonic frequency and pulse ratios and portions of the harmonic series as pitch material. Software and retuned instruments are used to achieve the microtonal pitches necessary.
Two violins and pure harmonic synths.
Cymatic visuals by Zach Walker.
As daylight progresses,
softens and mellows,
Violins breath amidst harmonic reflections
of the sun
Waves are born of stillness
grow in intensity
and reach static plateaus
Pure harmonic solo piano
Amorphous formations rise and fall
Inspired by walks along North Cornwall's coast looking down at submerged rock formations; changing depths, refracted shapes and reflections.
Pure harmonic synths
Harmonic strings entwine
broadening into a spiralling
A solitary voice emerges
exploring its existence
between cosmic winds
and deep primordial tones.
Piano, violin, double bass, electronics
A sparse landscape of pulses, processed violin and minimal bass.
