Perseverance

Graphic from my family album. Lithuanian relatives.

This is the second piece in my series examining John O’ Sullivan’s work The Mathematics of Music. In this improvisational piece I explicitly explore C minor using the Blue Temperament tuning system found in John’s book (available at Amazon).  I can say I did not “feel” a large difference between the two tuning systems, that being Just Intonation (see Excluded by Peers) and this tempered (or compromise from Just) system. The scala formatted file is below. Realized via pianoteq, M Audio 88es and Sonar 8.5
