    Scriaban's Mystic Chords

    While listening/reading on cable channel Classic music, I read about the SCRIABAN MYSTIC CHORDS. A quick search led to a 3 chord series of chords which led me to this interesting experiment.

    Nice 3 chords. I think I would have gone a little more atonal with them, but that's just me.

    The piano blends in wonderfully.

    Nice piece

    Thanks for listening, Ron.
    This piece was interesting because almost any altered note would work.
    This could be a song with no end since there were no dominant or tonic chords until I ended the piece.
    I mostly employed the notes of the chord(s.)

    Mystic Chord - how bizzare. Must be one of the fabled lost chords re-discovered! Interesting work around it.

    Very interesting experiment, or should I call it an "exploration" of the chords? I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for listening, Gary.
    Try a search on Scriaban mystic chords. There's a good explanation
    of how they're built.

    Great piece. Reminds me of waves hitting the beach. Each time they are similar but each time they are also different. The waves of the chords wash over me and have a definite continuity but there is something different each time. I can see what you mean about how this can continue ad infinitum. Thanks for introducing me to this composer and this concept.

    here's a link to a short biography of Scriabin:

    Very interesting, Gary. I can see why you got inspired to work with those juicy chords.

    For me, randomly firing notes tends to result more in a sound effect than music, but it can be effective and interesting nonetheless.

    Nice experiment. They are indeed lovely chords. I have used them too a few times.

    I'm not sure if Alexander Scriabin himself knew quite what he
    was thinking sometimes; but the Three Mystic Chords (quartal
    hexachords) have fascinated a number of composers... myself
    included (occasionally used in orchestral pieces).

    For those with an interest, there's a quick write-up on them
    at Wikipedia, here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthetic_chord

    An interesting and worthwhile experiment, Gary. It's an aural
    quirk of these chords (to me, anyway) that they leave you both
    at sea and at rest at the same time...

    While I know you were mostly just exploring the terrain in this
    piece, I think maybe you're subconsciously headed somewhere
    quite productive with it. I'd encourage further work on this!

    My best,
