Horn and bassoon, c.5'00

The music is composed using the tuning system called 'Just Intonation'.  Here the tunings are organised around twelve sets of harmonics playable on a standard double horn.  Each valve slide is precisely tuned in a just intonation ratio to the central pitch, F concert.  The bassoon player has more limiied number of pitches to play though most will require non-standard fingerings to match the horn.
