The speaker horn is something I have been making and studying for quite some time. Through contemplating the spatial imaging and directionality of the horns, I began to think about utilizing these qualities dynamically. The way the projected sound coming from this spinning horn is reflected off surfaces in the environment is similar to a Leslie unit. The resulting effect envelops the listener in a variety of merging wave fronts both emanating directly from the horn, and reflected off surfaces in the environment.
An Introduction to Species Counterpoint C OUNTERPOINT may be briefly defined as the art of combining independent melodies. In figure 1 the lower melody is harmonized by one a third higher - such an arrangement of the voices could be regarded as counterpoint, but there is little or no independence between the parts; for example there is no dissonance between the voices, and both rise and fall together in parallel. However, the arrangement in figure 1a demonstrates much greater independence between its two voices, with movement in one part while the other halts, divergence in the melodic direction of the parts, and with at least some occurrence of dissonance. In a longer melody the voices could peak at different times - this would also emphasize their independence.
