A Simple Prelude in 88 Cent Tuning



This is a simple prelude in 88 cent tuning. (listed below) In this tuning each step is 88 cents in size. The result is that the tuning comes very close to some pure intervals but it misses the octave. I found the tuning a challenge to work in. In a way it the tuning is foreign enough forces its own paradigm of consonance and dissonance. The purpose of the excercise was to learn some harmonies in the tuning and also to work on microtonal counterpoint. Composed in Sibelius 6.2 with pianoteq.
