Tuning

Ancient Naquian music uses a division of the perfect fifth into 4 or 8 equal parts. (The 8 equal parts tuning is very close to the 88 cents equal tuning.) Skellan composer Rewhd Sgutsis noted that these scales fit nicely into a framework of 41 equal parts to the octave.

Scales in steps of the 8 equal division of the fifth scale:

  • 2 2 2 2 - 4edf
  • 2 2 3 1
  • 3 1 3 1

Native sources describe the following system of naming intervals in this scale.

  • "Unison"
  • Minor second = 88 cents
  • Neutral second = 176 cents
  • Major second = Minor third = 264 cents
  • Neutral third = 352 cents
  • Major third = Minor fourth = 440 cents
  • Neutral fourth = 528 cents
  • Major fourth = 616 cents
  • Perfect fifth ]= 704 cents
  • Minor sixth = 792 cents
  • Neutral sixth = 880 cents
  • Major sixth = Minor seventh = 968 cents
  • Neutral seventh = 1056 cents
  • Major seventh = 1144 cents
