Using the first movement of Debussy’s string quartet I trans-tuned from 12 to 26 notes per octave and further developed the derivative by transposition and tempo adjustment. The result, to my ears, is much more early 21th century than late 19th century string quartet.

Claire de Lune in Wilson’s Golden Horagram number1 tuning using u-he‘s Diva I think shows some of the amazing attributes of Wilson’s tuning systems. Throwing an arbitrary 7 note tuning and coming up with (for a microtonalist) very listenable result is impressive. I hope you enjoy this transtuned rendition as music as I have. The tuning is below.

Spring in February is an edited improvisation on my Linnstrument playing Pianoteq tuned to SuperPyth mode 1 in 22 edo. I hope you like it. It was nice to step away from 19 edo – and yes I was inspired by Brendan Byrnes excellent xenharmonic tutorial video.

Some Time Alone for 17 edo guitar. A lost post from 2011
As the title says I spent some time with my 17 et guitar. I purposefully tried doing non-12 sounding stuff with what I think is moderate success. I believe I will have to resort to some “dots” to get some new scales in 17 et down – there just is too much to keep track of when I change strings causing the patterns to be transposed. I apologize for the sloppy classical guitar – ish playing.
