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 a system of naming intervals in this scale.

  • "Unison"
  • Minor second
  • Neutral second
  • Major second = Minor third
  • Neutral third
  • Major third = Minor fourth
  • Neutral fourth
  • Major fourth
  • Perfect fifth
  • Minor sixth
  • Neutral sixth
  • Major sixth = Minor seventh
  • Neutral seventh
  • Major seventh
