Tuning

The oldest attested Naquic music used a division of the perfect fifth into 4 equal parts, much like Georgian tuning. It was suited for vocal polyphony with relatively small melodic steps.

Naquic music now uses a division of the perfect fifth into 8 equal parts. (This is very close to the 88 cents equal tuning.)
