Pianist Samuel Vriezen performs Tom Johnson's work presenting what Johnson describes as a natural phenomenon within a musical scale: progressions in 1 to 5 voices of all possible combinations of notes with each voice being limited to 3 steps, a perfect 4th or a perfect 5th.

Johnson, Tom / Samuel Vriezen
The Chord Catalogue. Within Fourths/Within Fifths

Johnson, Tom / Samuel Vriezen : The Chord Catalogue. Within Fourths/Within Fifths (Edition Wandelweiser Records )

Label: Edition Wandelweiser Records     
Released in: Germany    

"Within Fourths/Within Fifths: progressions in one to five voices of all possible combinations of notes with each voice being limited to three steps, a perfect fourth apart from the neighboring voices (Within Fourths) or to four steps, a perfect fifth apart from the neighboring voices (Within Fifths). I like to think of The Chord Catalogue as a sort of natural phenomenon - something which has always been present in the ordinary musical scale, and which I simply observed, rather than invented. It is not so much a composition as simply a list."-Tom Johnson
