Licht

Traum-FormelOboeLight
These strands consist of the three-layered super-formula of Licht, and are rotated vertically four times.

Formula composition

formulaformula techniquesuperformula
Each phase presents a different vertical disposition of the three strands of the Licht super-formula.

Dominant seventh chord

dominant seventhdominantV 7
The formula closes on a C dominant-seventh chord, and the rotations cause the four phases to cadence on this chord first in root position, then in 4/2 inversion, 6/5 inversion, and finally in root position again.
