    I just came by this and it's ultra facinating. I'm going to tab these chord scales out for guitar.

    It sounds like Gershwin meets Debussy.

    Great stuff for a composer, way advanced and dramatic sounds, enjoy,

    Here is one interpretation of these chords.

    #1, I IV V
    -
    1--3--5--6--8-10-12-13-12-10--8--6--5--3-1
    0--4--5--5--9-10-12-12-12-10--9--5--5--4-0
    2--5--5--7-1010-12-14-12-10-10-7--5--5-2
    -
    -

    #2 I IV V with added dominants
    -
    1--3--5--6--8-10-12-13-12-10--8--6--5--3-1
    0--4--3--5--9-11-10-12-12-10--9--5--5--4-0
    2--3--5--7-1010-12-14-12-10-10-7--5--5-2

    #3 contrary motion, a bit harder,,,
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    1--3--5--6--8-10-12-13-12-10--8--6--5--3-1
    ----------------5---9--------9-12---8--5--5--2--0-0
    2--3--5--7------------9------12-10------7--4--3-2
    0--2----------7---9---8-10------------7---------------
    --------6--8------------------------------------------------

    Break time, four more to come,

    Two more harmonisations to go.

    This is my first time playing and hearing these kind of chords just like you all. I've never played such harmonisations before, I can't put my finger on it, it sounds like dramatic old drama movie music. Except Stevie Wonder, that one totally challenges my ear.
