Four-Momentum (2018)

Download on Bandcamp.

Four-Momentum was released on Split-Notes.com, the net label exclusively for microtonal music. Equal temperaments are used, including 16edo, 17edo, 20edo, and the Bohlen-Pierce Scale.

All of ZIA's past albums have been composed exclusively with hardware synthesizers. Four-Momentum was composed with software synths, which have a different sound. This is the first instrumental ZIA release, yet even without the lyrical content it has the expected space-theme that ZIA is known for. Instead of the usual humans-in-space motif, these songs were inspired by space-time itself, thus the title Four-Momentum. Elaine would like listeners to peruse the topic of four-momentum and Einstein's relativity while listening (or roller skate while listening).
