24 Tone Clocks

Featuring two of New Zealand's finest pianists, Jenny McLeod's 24 Tone
Clocks is the definitive recording of an extraordinary series of compositions.
A lifetime in the making, 24 Tone Clocks is a summation of
Jenny's decades-long immersion into Peter Schat's 'tone clock' theory of
chromatic harmony.

In the early 80s Peter Schat introduced Jenny to his compositional theories,
and she immediately recognised many ideas she had already discovered for
herself. “It dawned on me,” says Jenny, "that Schat had come up with the
basis for a new terminology and framework of thinking with reference to the
(equal-tempered 12-note) chromatic system-something that I felt was not only
simple, practical and workable, but also fresh and full of imaginative potential
for the composer. Later in Amsterdam, Schat showed me the rest of his writings,
which were largely in Dutch. I came home and immediately started learning
Dutch, so as to translate and understand all of it. These translations were
eventually published in English as Peter Schat's The Tone Clock.
