In “Landscape” for double string ensemble (1992), the seven note (0,1,2,4,7,8,9) chord corresponding to Messiaen’s “dominant chord” develops canonically. The transposition grades upon which the chord is placed always follow one after the other on the same 7 rising interval (corresponding to perfect fifth) for one string ensemble, and on the same 7 descending interval for the other ensemble. Horizontally, opposite fragments of chromatic and hexatonal scales derive.
