Screaming Tool Booth in 13 edo and Bohlen Pierce

13 edo


The incorrect BP




By request I took Stuck at the Screaming Toll Booth and changed the tuning to 13 edo and for good measure included Bohlen Pierce as well since it is another native 13 note tuning. What amazes me is that the opening sounds identical in each tuning but by the middle of the piece the differences are very apparent, especially with BP.

Apparently Aria has an issue with a period of 3/1 – every tuning I’ve tried so far with a 3/1 period plays incorrectly. The opening descending motive is transformed. Here is the midi file for you to try yourself. 20140502_13

(13 edo) Was it Really in Springtime?

Friday, August 30th, 2013


Was it Really in Springtime? Was it Really in Springtime? is a live performance ambient piece in 13 and 12 edo. The 12 edo is my voice – I’m guessing I didn’t really stray from 12 edo with my singing. However the synthesizers are definitely in 13 edo. Controllers used M Audio 88es, Korg nanoKontrol. Software Albino, Ansynth, and Z3TA+ 2.1 in Sonar X1. Download the file from the folder here:
