Mesopotamian temperament

Post by ListTowardsLight »

I've been tinkering with ratio-based scales and writing scripts to generate them, and I'd like to gift the forum with a set of scales based on the temperament and modes presented at Light Bridge Music. I am not the owner of that site or the author of the article and credit is due them, but I believe that with Sumerian scales we're talking about prior art, so I feel free to share this representation that I generated using my scripts.

I find this temperament highly interesting because of its mathematical properties, its near approximation to equal-tempered music while preserving harmony. So, here are the seven modes related to it. Enjoy!Image
