This work creates a dialogue between the Western Equal Temperament system, performed by the orchestra, against the Persian Dastgâh/Maghâm system, performed by a microtonal trumpet capable of playing up to 24 notes per octave.  As the music juxtaposes these traditions, it explores the tensions as well as commonalities that exist between the two cultures.
