maybe that's why I like it. Almost like the 'blue' notes in a jazz piece.

very possible that is why.

I just like something different. I get bored easy :-)

But I got to start working seriously again I've had months of improvisations now.

This is quite pleasant, Clones. Looking through the tuning, I think it's probably because the tuning you've used is based primarily on tunings that are used more generally: they're not just 'alternate' tunings. The fact that, for example, you have two different thirds means that the tuning sounds interesting, but still harmonious.

Nice work.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the listen, comment, and liking it.

The JI quoted in the scale stands for Just Intonation. What this indicates is that "pure" intervals are used (like 5/4 for the major third) instead of the compromise of our "normal" tuning 12 EDO (equal divisions of the octave).

This guy has an interesting tuning system as well

http://www.lucytune.com/

he modifies 12 edo by using the value Pi and gets very pure thirds. His system is a type "meantone" tuning which was a popular system prior to 12 edo.

Here is an example of a composition in Lucy tuning
