Down to the Wire

I saw discussion of Bleu tuning on the yahoo tuning groups – all of which were tempered to a pure octave. Embolden by Andrew Heathwaite’s 88 cent guitar I decided to try the tuning without tempering to make the octave pure. So I made a scala file (below) and loaded it into pianoteq and added kontakt percussion and cymbals and Sonar SI drums all controlled simultaneously by the same 88 key M-Audio midi controller. This rather noisy piece is the result.

Down to the Wire The name comes from the fact that I just made the ImprovFriday deadline in posting this piece.
