Metalloid was written for the Harvey Mudd College Electronic Music Ensemble for their debut concert. The synthesizers are retuned to a scale based on the 3rd and 7th harmonics, as are the open strings of the electric guitars and bass. The name came from my son's recent study of the periodic table. The tuning is: 1/1 49/48 9/8 7/6 9/7 21/16 49/36 3/2 49/32 12/7 7/4 27/14
