What is all this obsession with prime numbers in alternative tuning?
I supposse we could have a "tuning table" using primes, here:
Prime sequence>
Prime sequence





Down


\/
.
How about useing the Fibocinni series vs the prime sequence, the Tribocinni
series vs the prime sequence, the Fibbocinni series vs the prime series?
We could use the ratios for notes in an octave, and notes over octaves in a
temperament.
Also, I must ask you, why do people always use RATIOS in a JI type temperament?
If the perfect fifth=3/2, and the perfect surd 5th=3^(1/2), or 2^(1/3), then
what say we let:
3/2=3^(1/a), 2^(1/b), c^(1/2), d^(1/3), and experiment with the
propertys of a, b, c, and d.
The same could be done for quiggles.
I will be in touch soon, Sarn.

A very simple answer: Because intervals in just intonation are measured
in ratios.
Also: can JI be a temperament????
Really now...

The obsession my Dear Sarn is that Prime #s with whatever definition you use are
the building blocks or rungs on the ladder of the Harmonic SeriesDNA spiral
whatever. Fibonacci is a quaint math game.

I agree fully on the prime stuff but I think the Fibonacci is not to be
overlooked. For one Walter O'Connell (LaMonte's,later my own Physics
teacher from LACC) showed at least one very good application of this
proportion. But SARN also the obsession we have with all this material
is that it produces good music.
