hmmm ... this is interesting:

i was searching for an EDO which would articulate the

"septimal kleisma" [2 2 -1] = 225:224 (~7.711522991 cents).

156edo looked very good, since the "augmented-6th" 225:128 and

the "harmonic-minor-7th" 7:4 are approximated very closely

by is 127 and 126 degrees, respectively. thus, the

"septimal kleisma" is almost exactly 1 degree.

but then, when i made a bingo-card-lattice of 156edo

("perfect-5th" ~3:2 = 91 degrees, "major-3rd" ~5:4 = 50),

the representation of 225:128 turned out to be 126.

so at least in this mapping (which to me is the one

which makes the most sense ... i think ...), the

"septimal kleisma" is not articulated after all!

help.

Use DIVIDE/CONSISTENT 225/224

You see the size is zero in 156-ET, 152 is better.

You could really articulate it with ets like 27 and 37,

which both represent it as one step, or 26, which shrinks

it to -1 steps!

If you really want to articulate it accurately, why not

use JI?

If Gene/Paul would follow through and make the tree zoom

duals, you might be able to see this kind of thing at a

glance!

Here you go:

We can consider 5-limit ets to be vals [a,b,c] with elements positive integers; they define a point in the projective plane. Since "a" is not zero, we can divide by "a" and get the point [b/a,c/a] in the affine plane as a coordinate patch. We now note that the points are all clustered about [log2(3),log2(5)], so we may move the origin to this point. We now have the "tree zoom" picture.

Similarly, if q is a comma, then we may consider it to be [a,b,c] where 2^a 3^b 5^c = q. We no longer can always divide by "a", so we cannot take "a=0" to be the line at infinity as we did with ets. Instead, we can take a+log2(3)*b + log2(5)*c=0 to be the line at infinity, since the comma is not 1. This means we can divide through by log2(q) (or cents, etc--which log map we use is not important) and

get [a/log2(q),b/log2(q),c/log2(q)]; taking the last two gives us an affine coordinate patch: [b/log2(q), c/log2(q)] which can be used to plot commas as points.

monz, this is really no different from 55-equal -- although the

*just* 80:81 (syntonic comma) is very nearly one degree of 55-equal,

the *native* 80:81 (syntonic comma) of 55-equal vanishes.

in that case you just need a much better 5-limit approximation -- 53-

equal of course does the trick.

in the current case you just need a much better 7-limit

approximation -- 152-equal, the universal tuning, will work. :)

similarly, one of your webpages claims that the schisma is well-

represented by one degree of 614-equal. of course, 612-equal would,

functionally, work much better, since it offers a far better 5-limit

approximation.

maybe we should start using the symbol 81;80 for the native syntonic

comma of any temperament?

unfortunately, 225:224 has components in all three directions (3, 5,

and 7), so it might be hard without a nice VRML implementation of

this . . .

Maybe Robert Walker can help us there... For now, the 5-limit

would still be cool. I suspect even cooler than the et-centric

versions...

Yer welcome--of course now you need to zoom out rather than in if you want to fool with this.

What would be really cool is a 3D applet, which let you look at a 7-limit picture from various directions. We could have either ets as points, linear temperaments as lines, and commas as planes, or a dual picture with commas as points, linear temperaments again as lines, and ets as planes.

Plus you can always use inversive geometry, turn either version inside-out, and replace the lines with circles.

this is all stuff that i've always intended from the beginning

to have available in my JustMusic software.

http://sonic-arts.org/monzo/justmusic/introtojm.htm

unfortunately, both the project and the Yahoo group have

been slumbering for quite some time. any chance we can

wake them up?

is that really true? do you have any of the ideas above referenced

anywhere?

what's on the webpage and in the archives of the Yahoo JustMusic group

is all i've ever made public about it. the rest of my ideas are in

folders and folders of notes and old BASIC code ... stuff that i

haven't even looked at in over 5 years.

The high-octane ets crowd in towards the origin, so you zoom in to find them. The high-octane commas expand out to infinity, so you would need to zoom out to include them.

Rad!

In both cases, the unzoomed versions show me what I want to see!

monz, if you dig up notes in your folders that mention even one of

these ideas, let alone all of them, i'll be absolutely stunned.

right -- i realized this as soon as i signed off last night.

i also realized that each et line will intersect each axis at a

distance from the origin inversely proportional to that consonance's

error in that et. this will spare me the effort of having to

construct a list of commas.
