tunings and temperaments

Over the years I've worked quite a bit in microtonal musics, chasing down pure intervals and ones that can shock as well.

I've built instruments in 19 tone equal temperament, 31 tone 5 limit just intonation, Partch's 43 tone 11 limit system and a few others. Mostly I've created music for real instruments a combination of writing tuning specific music for standard instruments and building some of my own to play these pieces.

Its challenging music, sonically and more so to write and play, but its also pretty cool in a totally music geeky kind of way.

I've a solo cd now of some of my works now available at BandCamp.
Check it out if you like.


And if you're interested in why, I've posted a little youtube explainer.
