Voiseynvention was composed for Robert Voisey’s XL birthday. I took the letters in Robert’s name and created two musical mottos from them. One of the mottos was a simple numerical procedure which I have subsequently forgotten. The other procedure mapped the letters of his name onto a telephone keypad and then correlated the numbers on the keypads to pitches. Again, I’ve forgotten exactly what I did. I’ll let future theorists sort it out. They will like this sort of thing.
Happy birthday, Rob!
