The duration of the microphony decreases in a sawtooth motion; it moves from 11 1/5 beats to 12 beats, then down to 6 1/6 beats then up to 12 3/7 then down to 3 beats and so on until it disappears completely.
The microphony is composed of sustained pitches which, through the twelve repetitions of the process, move in five steps from harmonicity toward inharmonicity as shown on Example 6 (where the inharmonic tones are indicated by black notes).
With its transference of such phenomena as ring modulation, frequency modulation, combination tones, and filtering from the electronic to the acoustical domain, it presents new compositional ideas and generates new procedures like microphony and macrophony.
