Just Intonation in Notes and Numbers

An idealized, orderly, and multisymmetric presentation of parts of the interval material from Just intonation. All intervallic pairs with the same distance through the center are complementary within the octave. The compass rose at the top left indicates that one moves horizontally (primarily the axis from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock) in perfect fifths (right) and perfect fourths (left), respectively; in the direction of the axis from 1 o'clock to 7 o'clock and its parallels one moves in just major…See More

OVERTONES – Music, Phonetics, ... and Maths intertwined

OVERTONE SINGING

Marco Gianotta is a great friend and a formidable programmer. Some years ago he fulfilled my dream of seeing the overtone spiral in an interactive version, and he even added some opportunities which I hadn't dared to even dream of.

I am still confident that the overtone spiral/octave spiral is a most fundamental approach to the essence of music, and that this visualization may help not only to get a better grip of the nature of overtone singing and to relevant exercises, but also to get…

Hi Skye
Jens gave me the link to your map soundplaces,.. I started a new group Overtone Music locations and my Idea is to creat a map like yours but for locations that present overtonemusic. How did you do your map can you help me or post one in the group?

Hi,
I read some of your explanations on the sound/color relationship which I consider really sophisticated. Cool.
