A Hard-to-Find Tenney

“What I have done that may be new is to find a number of different ways to use the
harmonic series as the basis for an entire piece (first in Clang for Orchestra, 1972). The
second involves my concern with form, not as a rhetorical device (as in the sonata), or as
a means to ensure “comprehensibility” (Schoenberg’s motivation), but simply as another
object of perception—like the sounds themselves, but at a larger holarchical level.”
