A plain text article, and a very colorful one. Hinting at the beauty of Polychromatic Music or simply anything beyond the limitation of 12-tone equal temperament (12-ET) that pianos forced us into during the 20th century. It makes me want to start trying that Microtuning in Bitwig Studio even more.
I’m no music theory expert, not even a proper learner, but I am interested. The other day I was playing with some notes, I liked how they sounded, and after a quick investigation I learned that they were in the key of G natural minor. I’m still at that level where anything beyond C Major is interesting and yet unfamiliar territory, so I decided to learn more about this scale until it becomes familiar, natural in my fingers.
This is how I stumbled upon a page that is basically an informative ad of a piece of software, but it was informative indeed and contained an interesting link to Schubert’s Affective Musical Key Characteristics. There I found the link to the Piano’s Ivory Cage.
