Elf Stone

DSCF0816elf

Elf Stone is a study in using 4 different related tunings simultaneously. The tunings are 7, 8, 9, and 10 note elf magic tunings recently created by Gene Ward Smith. I’ll claim that I’ve been running short of time and wanted to try all of Gene’s tunings and decided the most expedient way to do so was all in one go. The tunings are transposed and panned as follows 7 + 24 notes up and 50% left, 8 + 12 notes up and panned 75% left, 9 + 0 notes (not transposed) and panned 75% right, 10 – 12 notes and panned 50% right. Gene’s scala files are in this zip.
