The pleasure we derive from music depends greatly upon the repeat patterns created within the music by the composer. All good music possesses symmetries. These symmetries are apparent to the trained eye, which can examine a composition, and without hearing it, judge its quality of sound. By decoupling time and meter, music composers gain the ability to create fresh sounds within a very old art.rnIn the case of Dr. Grisafi's music album, Chromavox, musicians will recognize the symmetry inherent within his innovative and refreshing arrangements. Within this celebration of entropic time and Resonance Universe Theory are four uniquely arranged compositions employing the alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, and contrabass. Also included are three bonus selections: STTT, Sextus, and the sprightly piano composition Monongahela.rnrnSeeking to eliminate the redundancy of time signature and meter bar construction in the composition of music, Dr. Grisafi cast the bar meter independently of the time signature. Utilizing sound fonts for the creation of midi (musical instrument digital interface) files, then recording the music in stereo, Chromavox is sure to delight even the most seasoned and well-read musicians. Let your eyes and ears embrace the fresh new music that awaits you in Chromavox.rnrnSteven Grisafi was educated as an engineer at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Yale University, and Columbia University in the City of New York, where he earned his PhD in chemical engineering. He currently resides in Easton, Pennsylvania. To listen to some of his music compositions, please visit http://stevegrisafi.spaces.live.com.
