16Hz The Threshold

For Flute, Bb Clarinet, Baritone Sax, Piano, Drums, Bass & Voices

Duration: 05′ 38″

The Pitch Pulse threshold suggests that frequencies below 16 hz are perceived as being part of a rhythmic event, 16 hz + is generally perceived as pitch (sensorimotor rhythm [SMR], regarded as a “resting” brain wave, has a frequency within the range of 13 to 15 Hz).

16 Hz = 8x demisemiquavers at 120 bpm = Pitch C-1

This track is a deconstructed Salsa of sorts, that explores the C1-C9 palindromic LIE scale.
