Incidence and Coincidence

What happens when you play simultaneously in different tunings? Each note in this 19-tet melody is ``harmonized" by a note from 12-tet, resulting in some unusual nonharmonic sound textures. The distinction between ``timbre" and ``harmony" becomes confused, although the piece is by no means confusing.

It's 5:23 long and about 4.9 Megs.
