Polyphinite is an experiment in a new composition style/technique that focuses on maximizing existing material within a composition. Each solo piece within the work, titled Polyphinite [#], functions as a solo piece of music. For the second tier of compositions, the duet layer, a duet (designated as Poliphinite [D# - #] is comprised from two of each possible combination of the first tier, the solo layer. This composite is the result when performing two of the solo tier pieces at the same time, using the same time constraints. This pattern continues as far as the composer cares to go (my goal for this experiment being a quartet), yielding a final tier, Poliphinite X. This final tier can be simply at the duet level, if only two solos are written, or as far as an octet if eight unique solos are written in this manner. Using this method of composition, a composer could theoretically write a full band piece giving each performer a unique part that, in a smaller setting, would act as either a solo, or as part of a trio for timpani, flute, and Bass trombone. The more parts written yields more challenge to the composer, requiring higher and higher degrees of fine tuning and attention to detail.
