Musical tuning: in the Kingman Lecture Series.

I'm giving a lecture at Kingman tonight at 8 pm on musical tuning systems. Ever wondered:
  • ...why there are 12 notes in an octave?
  • ...why there are 7 notes in a major scale?
  • ...why they have the pitches they have?
  • ...what pitches the Ancient Greeks used?
  • ...what notes make a scale in Arabic music?
  • ...what music in a 13-note scale sounds like?
Come and find out.
