I should have added that this is the diaschismic temperament.

This is my interpretation of the Indian scales.

Would you call this one a "unique facet of 65-tET"? Is this the kind

of thing that Graham's searching pairs of ETs is likely to miss?

Magic. Rather than continuing, Gene, could you start over going from

This way puts similar systems together; why do it the other way?

To get a sense of whether I can accept your kind of "flatness" in

Is this better or worse than Magic in the 5-limit?

I don't get it--how will mixing the apples with the oranges do that?

I just want to get the sense that some fixed value of badness is

going to remove unimportant ones while retaining all the important

ones. For example, I'd definitely set tbe badness cutoff high enough

so that meantone, augmented, and diminished, even if they had errors

as large as in 12-tET, make it in.

No, he'd be bound to hit it if he did things right.

Graham is more likely to include things I wouldn't than vice-versa--his methods can include more than one version of the same system, so that you have for instance meantone, and another meantone with a seemingly useless doubling of the generator steps. There are at least three version of kleismic on his list--one the usual, one with doubled generator steps, and one with a half-ocatave period.

Yes. That's an interesting, uh, feature of my algorithm for going from

ETs to linear temperaments.

A normal 5-limit kleismic can be generated from 19- and 34-equal:

>>> h19 = temper.PrimeET(19, temper.primes[:2])

>>> h34 = temper.PrimeET(34, temper.primes[:2])

>>> (h19&h34).mapping

[(1, 0), (0, 6), (1, 5)]

The defining wedge product is

>>> (h19^h34).complement().flatten()

(-6, -5, 6)

One example where it goes wrong is 15- and 23-equal

>>> h23 = temper.PrimeET(23, temper.primes[:2])

>>> h15 = temper.PrimeET(15, temper.primes[:2])

>>> (h23&h15).mapping

[(1, 0), (0, 12), (1, 10)]

the wedge product is

>>> (h15^h23).complement().flatten()

(12, 10, -12)

and so simplifies to be equivalent to the above. In this case, it's

obvious from looking at the generator mapping that something's wrong,

because it has a common factor of 2.

The other strange example is 4&34:

>>> h4 = temper.PrimeET(4, temper.primes[:2])

>>> (h4&h34).mapping

[(2, 0), (6, -6), (7, -5)]

for the same reason

>>> (h4^h34).complement().flatten()

(-12, -10, 12)

Here, though, there's nothing obviously wrong with the resulting

temperament.

So are these behaviours a problem? They follow from the generator and

period being chosen ahead of the mapping. That's probably correct,

because this is supposed to be an extension of the Scale Tree(s). They

won't usually get to the top of the list, because they have a higher

complexity than the equivalents. But it does mean temperaments will be

underrated if they appear in this way. I'm hoping that any set of ETs

containing a pair with torsion will also contain a pair without torsion.

Also that it'll be far less common in the higher limits. If not, we can

always get to those temperaments by using wedge products. With the

current implementation, at least, I expect that would slow things down.

Aren't these all valid systems to consider? I wouldn't want to leave

any stone unturned.

If you want, you can get rid of it by implimenting torsion extermination.

I would simply divide out by the gcd.

There's nothing obviously right about it either. Again, it could be eliminated by dividing by the gcd, and would we really lose anything we want? This sort of thing is exactly analgous to the 24-et version of 5-limit, [24, 38, 56] which started this whole torsion thing. You have a kleisma not in the kernal, but its square *is* in the kernel, if you try to produce a temperament starting from the comma side, and that wouldn't work, just as it won't work to try to get the 24-et from the torsion commas. We therefore have temperaments not classified in terms of wedgies if we allow these.

> So are these behaviours a problem?

We've seen that torsion seems to lead to confusion of one kind or another, and we don't get any positive value from it I can discern.

Yes, like this:

>>> (h23^h15).complement().linearTemperament().mapping

[(1, 0), (0, 6), (1, 5)]

Gene:

> I would simply divide out by the gcd.

But you also said that 15&23 only defines the generator, not the

temperament. So applying both rules means 15&23 and h15&h23 are

melodically incompatible, which looks wrong to me.

What do you mean? It's a linear temperament consistent with 4- and

34-equal in the 5-limit. Exactly what you asked for.

> Again, it could be

The mapping is [(2, 0), (6, -6), (7, -5)]. The GCD is 1. So dividing by

it doesn't change anything. You do lose the exact half-octaves, which are

a common property of 4- and 34-equal. So the result wouldn't be what you

asked for.

Well, we're keeping torsion in periodicity blocks, aren't we?

We're not going from the comma side, so that's not a problem.

Yes, we do.

The 24 note periodicity block produced by a comma and diesis is the

traditional 22 shrutis plus two extra notes. That's good enough for me.

The confusion only comes in when you try and generate a temperament.

Where the ETs have torsion, the temperament comes out no problem.

Although it's over-complex, and there'll be confusion if you try to

calculate a periodicity block.

Naah . . . I would say it's already confusing beforehand. Why would a

comma squared be considered an equivalence if a comma itself isn't?
