|Subject:||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?
