The ratio 27:28 has become an important element of not only my sonic compositions, but my visual compositions as well.

In my sonic compositions this small interval creates a difference tone of the fundamental and serves to bring rhythm and subtle dissonance into the pure Just Intonation world of The Four Pillars

In the visual realm, the ratio of 27:28 becomes an elegant dimension just off of square. The almost imperceptible rectangle encompasses the viewer.
