I've been enjoying Ivan Wyschnegradsky a lot lately. I don't think quartertones are really a fantastic approach to microtonality, but he puts it to good use.

interesting, any pieces or albums you would recommend?

I was listening to this one lately
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxtJ63Xe584

it's actually sixth tones; 36tet, played on 3 pianos

He followed in the footsteps of Scriabin in his approach. I like it as a sort of impressionistic sounding alternative to serialism, etc.

Recs for protein music?

technically microtonal means it uses intervals smaller than usual (<100 cents), but more generally it just means music with any alternative temperament that isn't related to 12 equal

the problem is that 12 tone equal temperament is just a compromise; some intervals aren't particularly good, and some very nice sounding intervals aren't available at all
>>
I found a few good examples a while back

music made with the notes 'in between' the keys of the piano.

western music divides the octave into 12 notes. microtonal music divides the octave into 24 or 48 notes (or more, or other random numbers)

it sounds kind of out of tune and exotic to our ears.

its also commonly used in middle eastern and turkish music

Syzygys are a cool example of microtones in a more popular form

it's mu what did you expect.. that and O 'Based Microtonal music' P is trying too hard
>>
>>53154614
Not really. Honestly I think microtonality is an essential thing that people should be exploring now. It's been worthwhile territory forever, but not widely done due to the inconvenience. But computers make it practical now.
>>
How 2 get into making microtonal? I thought it would be a waste of time because i thought unfamiliar tunings wouldn't subconsciously conjured up memories, or something.

But aphex twin said he's used it for most of his career and i can hear it now, I always knew there was something different about it.

He says he does his own custom tunings but never 12TET any idea wtf he's talking about

It's not that hard to get used to it. You just need to listen a lot. It can be hard to play some temperaments on an ordinary keyboard, but you can pick 7 or 12 pitches out of a large temperament and play it more easily that way. Smaller divisions of the octave like 7 or 8 or 9 can force you to do something interesting without having too many notes. It won't sound like anything familiar because the normal intervals aren't there.

>But aphex twin said he's used it for most of his career and i can hear it now, I always knew there was something different about it.
I think he's kinda full of shit. He detunes stuff but I wouldn't call that "microtonal" in any meaningful sense. He's just making things more dissonant. There's nothing really wrong with that, but think the goal of microtonality should be to explore alternative forms of consonance.
