Architecture of Tonality Intro
The charts and articles here explore the principles behind a proposal for unifying the three distinct systems of harmony to benefit the explorations of musicians, teachers, sound practitioners and all people with ears. Most of the general public and a significant number of musicians are unaware that the system that our guitars and pianos and other western instruments are designed around called “equal temperament”, has strengths and weaknesses, was not given to us by the geometry of nature, and is not the only one used in the world today.
We illuminate the best uses and differences between these three worlds of harmony and show how they unite as one.
“Interesting thoughts and charts. You’ve externalized a lot of ideas that I share with you, but haven’t put into words or a system. And you’ve done so in a refreshingly non-academic manner. Bravo!!”
