Theaterism

Naquian religion uses theater as a religious text. Plays are used to draw moral and religious lessons.

Naquian mythology was immensely complex with many gods, spirits and figures, and events. Originally epics were used to transmit this knowledge but plays began playing a much greater role as a memorable way to transmit the stories. The scripts for the sacred plays were meticulously specified not only the words and gestures that actors were to say, but also props, costumes and staging.

Music

Instruments

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
