In the 'Harmony Series 11-16', very small events are happening in every nook and cranny of the music, and these subtle changes give magical effects to the music. This is in fact not magic at all - all the events are due to the theoretical structure of the music, but the way Pisaro incorporates them into his compositions is so subtle and natural, that the whole impression on his music becomes poetic. When I listen to each piece while carefully paying attention to the details, I feel that the nuance of the poem in each score gradually emerges on the surface of the music.
In Michael Pisaro's compositions, the scores themselves are as artistic as his music. (Thanks to Mr. Pisaro, I was able to have the scores to the complete series.) When I read the poems and his musical instructions in the scores to the 'Harmony Series', I can imagine how the music would come into being as if I were actually hearing it. To read the poems (and the 'silences' between lines as well) in the scores, while imagining how these poems would be reflected in the actual music, seems to be another profound experience of this series.
