Two Pieces in 5 Quarterflat

5quarterflat

I present two pieces in a tuning I’ve been playing around with. The basic idea of the tuning was to access some neutral intervals in a 12 edo setting. To a degree I accomplished this. I’m partial to some of the harmonies in The Bitter Bride The Bitter Bride

and I’m surprised that the neutral intervals can sound downright happy in Dancing in Plasticine Grass Dancing in Plasticine Grass .

YMMV of course.

A word about the way mp3 files are now linked. Yahoo! decided that the Yahoo Media Player wasn’t in their interest to provide to the world. Its a shame because it was the niftiest thing around. The closest replacement I’ve found is the black bar at the bottom – but its unruly and of course there are the blue play buttons all over obscuring titles in old posts. One day this will be better. Right now I am in the process fixing my posts. I have over 755 linked mp3’s so an automagic solution would be best.

The tuning I am using in scala format – technically a 24 edo subset.
