“Internal Dialogue” is an exploration in combining the two most symmetrical chords of western tonal music: the augmented triad and the diminished 7th. Although there are a limited set of possibilities with all chords in equal temperament tuning, these two produce the least number of variants. And yet, they provide a rich range of pitch material when fused together.
