So a while ago, I came across pitch-class sets and decided to use a set (in this case, 4-18) as the basis for a piece. The '4-18 chord' is used throughout the piece and the complement of the set forms the scale used in the flute solo.

It's interesting. I rarely hear someone refer to a set class by its Forte number. 
Anyway, it's really well done. Watch out for the writing out of some of your rhythms and I feel like some of the things that maybe should come out are covered up by the other instruments but the ideas are good. Do you know "Pas de Deux" by Stravinsky? Take a listen and an analysis of that; late Stravinsky was a set class monster.

The only reason I refer to the set by it's Forte number is that it makes a much better title. <1,0,2,1,1,1>  doesn't really have the same ring to it. :)

 I haven't heard of Pas de Deux, I'll be sure to give it a listen/analysis.

Thanks for sharing, it's beautiful. I really like the unique sonorities you can get with PC sets. 

 

Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)
