A Little Kid Sees a Skyscraper
for two quarter-tone-tuned guitars
Instrumentation: two guitars, one tuned a quarter-tone flat
"A Little Kid Sees a Skyscraper," is based on daring and death-defying expeditions on the island of Manhattan taken by the composer and his father long ago. It is scored for two guitars, one tuned a quarter-tone below the other. Between the two, all twenty-four tones of the quarter-tone scale are available, opening a fresh, rich harmonic domain. The first and third movements explore quarter-tone harmony, while the second is primarily polyphonic.
