Piano Exercise in 17 Notes per Octave (August 2016)

17edo_august

This Piano Exercise in 17 Notes per Octave (August 2016) is another in my series of writing something playable for a piano student that has modest skills in a microtonal tuning. The score is purposely scordatura because I think that notating in various microtonal accidentals is simply a burden when a person with a 12 equal midi controller and microtonal aware sound source set to 17 notes per octave (like a free Xen-Arts VSTi) can simply play the score as if it was written for 12 equal but the sound will be in 17 equal and produce the microtonal music of the score. The composition is somewhat free form with development.

The full score is here. Academic performance in a setting where a fee is charged is allowed. Any other commercial use without my permission is not. Please write me for permission in such a case, I haven’t told anyone no as of yet 🙂

Below is an animate score version
