Richard Burdick's I Ching Music

For over thirty years I have been using the I Ching as a foundation for my compositions. The I Ching is a system from the ancient Chinese used for divination. It's a binary system with a range I Ching Hexagramof 64 possibilities  (8 x 8 = 64). The rising and falling energy flows in the hexagrams suggest music form, melody line, emphasis points and much more. The Pattern of the lines suggest scale patterns. The 64 different hexagrams give us 64 different scales,I Ching Scales V. 5and the correlation of the 64 scales to the harmonic series gives each scale an individual vibration rate with the harmonics 64 through 128. It's a grand pattern full of musical color. Composer
Richard O. Burdick
