Among the Dreams ( 23 / x )

Recently, I've gotten more excited and interested in unequal tunings based on frequency ratios.  I plan  to experiment with a variety of different approaches to the harmonics with hopes to be able to understand some qualitative and functional aspects of them.

My previous work with the Rhodes was focused on the 13th harmonic, combinations of overtones and undertones, but with a few accounts of the 3rd harmonic present.  Note also that this wasn't the maximal set of 13s representation, as all of the 13s were tuned to the reference pitch.

In this piece, I took a similar but different approach.. For some reason the 23rd harmonic called to me and I found that the set of ratios with numerator 23 was exactly 12 (this also will be 24, and this pattern of ~ half continues..)

I was blown away by how incredible this set sounded to me.  I will definitely be working with this more :)
