“Microterritories: Lost and Found Borders” is a microtonal/drone performance piece for modular synthesizers, a brief found sound element, and a software microtonal synthesizer part based on a hybrid just intonation scale with selected higher harmonics (the Pythagorean major third and some harmonics based on the primes 17 and 19). The title plays on the idea of microtonality as a conceptual and perceptual space in which magnitude is relative (small changes in pitch can produce dramatic changes in sonority), but also on the experience of a personal world rapidly contracting during lock- down, with smaller distances and territories taking on new signfiicance.
