How do you write a piece using rich, complex, chords that doesn't give you indigestion? And how do you use chromatic harmonies that don't fit into any particular key but somehow still sounds lush and delicious? Composer June Lee managed to do both of these in his little piano piece 'Pedal Point Etude' and in this video I look at and try to understand the various harmonic techniques he used in the piece. A huge thank you to June for his help preparing this video.
