    Music for at least six electric guitars in 13-limit just intonation. Tuning involves three groups of two guitars, each group having a different stringing and tuning. The first tuning, in harmonic numbers, is (from lowest-sounding string to the highest): 2.75 (11), 3, 3.25 (13), 3.5 (7), 4, 4.125 (33). The second tuning multiplies each tone in the first tuning by 1.5 (a 5th up). The third tuning multiplies the second tuning by 1.5, and is a 5th above it (a 9th above the first tuning). The pairs of guitars in each group share a stringing and a tuning but are pitched an octave apart through the use of a capo. The piece is strictly composed at the begining and involves more and more improvisation as it progresses. By the end, the piece is completely improvised (though the general direction of activity is specified). It's loud and chaotic, mercifully short, with a kind of music box ending. Music of Death (Fundamental Change and Opportunity)
