Musical structures as they stand are restrictive, yet creation often requires structure to flourish - ivy on a beam, moss on a log. This new compositional structure exists as a response to this conflict, providing a modular format of structural design, one that is deeply personal and inherently growable. Ten close friends experience fundamental emotions - anger, sadness, joy, surprise, laughter, disgust. Muscular response data is recorded and analyzed, with universal common artifacts reconfigured into a new musical scale. Levels of recurrance determine melodic structure and visual waveform define scale order, a visual language emerging from the new structures.

Using the 30 note structure, unique muscular data was used to create compositions. When multiple sonic pathways occurred, a randomization program was applied to select the next note. Focusing more on graphic rather than sonic systems, the following compositions explore the expansive visual properties of music when its fences are widened.
