Shiver was created as a concept to explore high-prime harmonic relationships, inspired by those pioneered by my mentor La Monte Young, in a short setting. Consisting of a single seven-note chord spelled out only with sine waves, the music unfolds slowly as each pitch is heard in one of four octaves. With the octaves never overlapping for a single pitch, a slow rhythmic structure is achieved through pure process.
