Wound Honey is my new piece for the wonderful trio terra invisus. Honey has been used to dress wounds for millenia. This new piece investigates its sugar sweetness with the astringency of iron-rich blood; its amber and red and bandange; its crystalline wax and clotting stasis.
The piece is an experiment in two different types of harmony: modal harmony and combination tone harmony. I thought I’d dig into the details. (I hope you find hand-drawn examples charming rather than exasperating: I didn't have time for the typesetting today!)
