Chagall [17]

chagall[17] Graphic by Scott Dakota August 2016

Scott Dakota developed a new tuning called “Chagall[17]” and I record a Linnstrument improvisation with pianoteq in the tuning as a demonstration. The tuning is below.

! Chagall[17].scl

(771/256)^(1/3) generator, ~13/9. Superb scale. Like 17&83 temperament in the 2.7.9.11.13.(23) subgroup. Scott Dakota, July 2016.

    Hi Chris,

    Hope all is well. This tunning sound beautiful. Can you please explain the process behind formulating this tunning? What made you choose (771/256)^1/3 as a generator?

    Looking forward to hear from you soon,

    Thank you,

    Yossi Tamim

    Hi Yossi, thank you for the listen and comment. Unfortunately I did not create the tuning. Scott Dakota did and you can find him on Facebook in the microtonal groups. Have a great day! Chris
