Picture Perfect Life

Composed by: Felix Salazar (b.1978)

Written for and premiered by Los Angeles Electric 8 at the 2008 MicroFest , "Picture Perfect Life" explores the sounds of 36-tone equal temperament tuning (the octave divided into 36 equal parts rather than the traditional 12). Its apparent simplicity is thwarted by both subtle and surprising rhythmic patterns and harmonies. Each of the three sections examine and exploit different aspects of the mictrones while playing with traditional tuning and tonality.
