Have you experienced this?
>>
i wonder:

if someone was raised to this music, how would whole-tone music sound to them?
>>
this is scary
>>
>>55180478
so thats like a really unique piano? they dont actually make those very often right?

i thought quarter steps were found mostly in eastern music.
>>
I want a Xenharmonic guitar so bad
>>
>>55180638

>>55180573
I believe Indian music uses quarter-tones.

also known as "microtonal"

some examples:

(microtonal melodies)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3FZkQTn51o
(microtonal pop)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0akGtDPVRxk#t=107
(microtonal keyboard piece from 1555)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23ImVLezV4c
(31 tone organ piece)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esvdSie_H4c
(Microtonal trills in the solo line)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYK_PF9WTRE
(turkish maqams)

turkish arabic, indian, bulgarian and balinese music is a wealth of microtones, as well as any non-autotuned vocal part: the voice naturally slides between notes creating microtonal inflections, something I've been trying to capture in this flute piece I'm writing...

also pic related is a great example of microtonal writing.

i like some arab and indian music that uses quartertone and stuff, but this people have a lot of more experience with using them and they're doing it much better.
>>
>>55180478
spooky. very interesting.
don't think i've ever heard anything quite like that.
>>
>>55180478
Also, it reminds me a lot of listening to a piano etude while on psychedelics.

>>55180478
This is incredibly unsettling

solutions for notating microtones

Wow, these are cool
>>
How do you make microtonal sounds on a digital level. I've been trying to find a way to for a while.
>>
>>55180573
I think there would just be longer intervals as compared to what they were used to
>>
>>55181596
fine tune your notes.

every DAW should have a fine pitch or channel pitch that you can automate. Its measured in cents. 100 cents is a semitone (1 fret) 200 cents is a whole tone (2 frets). anything less is microtonal.

so you could choose a microtonal scale that had:

A
B
C (Sharp 25 cents)
D
F# (flat 25 cents)
G

then just stick to that scale for your piece. or change to a new scale.

the other option is just to microtonally tune random notes to you ears content
>>
>>55180638
presumably you could theoretically tune any normal piano to be like this (although it might not be good for it)
