In 53 notes per octave for Brass Ensemble is a piece performed on a Linnstrument using Kontakt’s factory brass ensemble and tuning script. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Kontakt 5 handled the large number of notes per octave without a reduction in range or “chipmunk” effect. Information on the 53 edo tuning.

17 out of 53-tET, Arabic Pythagorean scale, Safiyuddîn Al-Urmawî (Safi al-Din)(a tuning from the Scala archive) is a piano improvisation using my 17 edo piano layout. This piece was done for the fun of performance and exploration. The accidentals in this tuning are interesting, sometimes unexpected combinations turned up as I played. Here is the scoredatura midi file for interested parties.
