chronoma, from the Greek roots chroma (color) and chronos (time), portrays the exploration of timbral, textural and spatial sonic qualities through minute temporal and registral expansions and diminutions of melodic phrases. Because the variations are so trivial, new colors, timbres and textures emerge from the false sense of monotony.
