Low Energy and Equal Spacing The multifactorial evolution of tuning systems

Abstract

Studies of tuning systems established in different historical and ethnic cultures suggest that their evolution is mainly dependent on two different, mathematically incompatible, principles: equidistance, based on a mostly logarithmic perception of the audible frequency range, and harmonic consonance generated by simple integer pitch ratios (SIPR). Since for… (More)
