Four-Momentum (2018)

1. Hyperbolica (20edo) 04:32
2. Lorentz Force (17edo) 04:00
3. Euler's Identity (Bohlen-Pierce) 05:35
4. Skate Space (16edo) 04:51
5. Wave Equation (17edo) 04:46

Four-Momentum was released on Split-Notes.com microtonal netlabel, December 2018.

All of ZIA's past albums and EPs have been composed exclusively with hardware synthesizers. Four-Momentum was composed with software synths, which have a different sound. This is the first instrumental ZIA release, yet even without the lyrical content it has the always expected space-theme that ZIA is known for. Instead of the usual humans-in-space motif, these songs were inspired by space-time itself, thus the title Four-Momentum. Elaine would like for listeners to peruse the topic of four-momentum and Einstein's relativity while listening (or roller skate while listening).

This is the first ZIA release since Drum'n'Space (2011), most likely because Elaine was writing a 300 page physics/philosophy book titled "Matter Over Mind: Cosmos, Chaos, and Curiosity," now on Amazon. We can expect regular ZIA releases hereafter.

A few different equal temperaments are used for Four-Momentum, including 16edo, 17edo, and the Bohlen-Pierce Scale, and one that Elaine had not composed in before – 20edo.
