6 acoustic guitar parts captured live to my Pure Data sample patch, then remixed, manipulated in the patch. This turned out Steve Reich influenced to me with no forethought to that oddly.

Really like this. Your voice is getting defined in all these songs this one no less and the feeling between the self driven ensemble is tightening. Good work Chris!

TurN up the volume

The question of how microtonality is perceived and why is a hotly debated one. There seems to be, in general, but not in all cases, shared intervals around the world, like the 5th. However non-western cultures use, in general, microtonal tunings. 12 equal notes to an octave is a relatively recent invention in the west. 300 years ago it was common for what would be now called a microtonal tuning to be in common, everyday use. As best as can be determined the push for 12 equal was all about changing keys in a single piece of music. If you take the tuning of the middle ages, Pythagorean, you find you can’t play in any key despite having 12 notes because the intervals between the notes are not equally spaced. As a result when you take a pure chord and move it up or down the octave with the same distance between the notes it could become something hideous. 12 Equal solves that problem at the expense of detuning all notes, some more than others.

from I think it would be a good idea. Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization, AQ
