Strident Dissonance # 1-5


Strident Dissonance

is a side-project of sorts, that surfaced in October- November, 2008---during the economic crisis,  two  elections and Halloween. 

The frames are constructed in hardwood (maple from a baby crib); and within are compositions where piano components are suspended in layers of broken glass.

The title of this numbered series comes from a musical term that refers to an unstable quality of sound---that which begs to resolve, such as the diminished seventh chords commonly associated with horror and suspense.
