Re: Chord Names in Sagittal

Ok so just to clarify. P and p means Pao-major and Pai-minor, T and t mean Tai-major, and Tao-minor. Right? Triads are named by third, omitted quality suffix in Cam's system was assumed to be the :|):M3 but am I correct in saying you Dave prefer it to be :/|:M3? So C in cam's is C E G but here, you ...

Re: Chord Names in Sagittal

Why not go the next step and drop the p and P and just call them Ct7 and C7? Because we don't do that in 12 EDO anyway, Cm7 means C Eb G Bb so Ct7 implies there is both a tai 3rd and tai 7th. Good point regarding Ct7. It would need to be written "C.t7" for it to be the approximate 4:5:6:7...

Re: Chord Names in Sagittal

Well in that case, I wouldn't even use major and minor, just the suffixes because it's too long winded to say all that. so 4:5:6:7 is C-pao-tai-7 or CPt7 for short possibly. C:E:\!::G:B:/|::b: can be called a C-pao-pai7 or CPp7 for short. Why not go the next step and drop the p and P and just call ...

Re: Chord Names in Sagittal

So I'm running into several qualms with sagittal chord names. Assuming we already know what to call accidentals, we have Pai, Pao, Pai-flat, pao-sharp. Here's my proposed system based on Cam's system with a few modifications for special chords. This post is mainly for 22 TET but applies to everythi...

Sagittal Handbook/website

So when all of this has been worked out, I want to begin writing a handbook or possibly online resource which explains the method simply and gives the our chosen standard for every EDO someone wants to know how to notate. I know obviously EDO can be infinity so I don't know where to stop or if there...

Re: 13 EDO

In the Xenharmonikon article we recommend notating it as every 3rd note of 39-edo. But Cryptic Ruse has just made a reasonable case for notating it as every second note of 26-edo. 26-edo: (A:B, C:D, D:E, F:G, G:A = 4) (B:C, E:F = 3) (# = 1) :26-edo A A:#: A:x: A:bb: A:b: A B...

13 EDO

How do you notate 13 EDO? It's weird because father is an 8 note scale while glacial being a 7 note scale is not built from a chain of fifths.

Re: Key Signatures and MOS Notation

It would appear I forgot something. In trying to notate a score which is in A:\!: Major with some 5-comma shifts, I ended up using a key signature which has a B:\!: E:\!: A:\!: D:\!: so I'm finding that we need pai and pao key signatures for the other chain of fifths so our key signatures don't look...

Re: Key Signatures and MOS Notation

I agree with Dave that key signatures should not be used with decatonics. They should be reserved for rather special cases of microtonal music, anyway. In the case of decatonics, they certainly make reading the notation slower and prone to mistakes. In classical music - the most notation-based genr...
