Fyxoomian classical music

From the fusion of Talman, Bjeheondian and Txapoallian roots arose a uniquely Fyxoomian tradition of classical music.

Common instruments include various traditional Talman and Bjeheondian instruments - namely various acoustic violins, guitars, trombones, and drums.

Modern music

In the modern period, Fyxoomian art music took a sharp populist turn. Conventional wisdom holds that the composer Cabr Govolab, with his band A Þlaihyn Dawl, is responsible for this "Populist" movement. As a result of the Populist movement, modern Fyxoom has much less of a divide between popular music and art music than modern Western culture. Music academics tend to be (literal) rock stars. More classical influences exist in more "specialized" genres.


Modern music often uses amplified violins, cellos, guitars, organs, and various drums, as well as electronic isomorphic keyboards.


Some genres of modern music include:

  • Fyxoomian rock is a genre that developed out of Fyxoomian folk music, Bjeheondian tsoafley, in addition to Txapoallian influences.
    • Nerd music: the above but often with science-, sci-fi- or video game-themed lyrics; somewhat more "exotic" musically.
  • Minimalism
  • Chiptune: in free extended just intonation. Used as early or retro video game music.
    • Film and video game music: Overlaps somewhat with Fyxoomian classical music and nerd music.
    • Baroque chiptune is part of the modern Clofabian nabitameran tradition (composed as opposed to improvised music), inspired by Fyxoomian old video game music and Palkhan music. It uses Baroque tropes frequently, and the tuning is meantone (31edo or quarter comma meantone).
  • Trician prog rock and metal borrows heavily from classical idioms such as: long, quasi-operatic song forms; use of classical JI tunings such as cross-sets, CPS's and constant structures and newer JI tunings.


Modern Fyxoomian popular music (by extension, modern popular music globally) often uses simple JI scales built from the harmonic series - a highly divisible number like 24, 36, 48, or 60 is used as the common denominator for the JI intervals in the scale. JI intervals may be approximated with other JI intervals (for example, 25/16 ≈ 14/9), but the identifications are not necessarily consistent as in regular temperaments. Quarter comma meantone is also common.

31edo is the norm for fixed pitch instruments.

Sometimes, especially in electronic music, other simple tempered scales such as 5edo, 7edo, 8edo, 9edo, and 10edo are used. Overtone scales in avant garde music often use high primes like 23 or 29 instead of composites for the tonic, like Zhea's primodal scales, unlike the prevailing composite-denominator overtone scales.


  • Honan Đawhindøø was a composer who studied in Talma during the late Classical period. He helped continue and further develop the tradition of Classical-style JI music in Fyxoom.
  • Beñsum Glahdu was a Fyxoomian classical composer.
  • Cabr Golab (stage name A Þlaihyn Dawl) was a Populist composer who formed Tricin's first "rock band".
  • Smrehtaið Awvliam was a music theorist who founded the Prycþéñ lly Frindu Jytylisríx (Society for Experimental Music). He is responsible for the concept of harmonic entropy.
  • Segin Þwhgad was a "Tolkien of music" who invents musical cultures for conworlds. He was a composer of film music, video game music, musical dramas and fictional music.

In modern times, Neoclassicism emerged as a dissident movement in both Fyxoom and Talma (in Fyxoom, as a reaction to the perceived "shallowness" of Populism; in Talma, as a reaction to hyper-academic music).

Fyxoom has its own offshoot of Windermere music as well. Some styles that fell out of use in Talma are still commonly performed in Pategia, such as the song with intoning voice (gawl jyþmeer).

Fjudxára Serñ school

Rough timeline:

50 years before present: Styles very similar to minimalism and ambient music emerge in Fjudxara Serñ. Pieces composed by the Fjudxara Serñ school around that time can stretch for over 5 hours.

30 years BP: People have enough of that style and rebel, creating some of the most wildly dissonant music in Tricin (sometimes using crazy equal temperaments).

25 years BP: Minimalism makes a comeback in a slightly more "folksy" form (pieces are shorter etc.) The Brycþeñ lly Frindu Jydylisriz ("Experimental Music Society") forms a branch in Fjudxara Serñ, led by Schaus-Schaus Flein (Llaw-llaw Fnai). More fully acoustic pieces are written in the last 25 years.

Fyxoomian minimalism

Minimalist pieces from the Fjudxera Serñ school, ironically, have some of the most complex harmonic progressions in Trician music. One famous piece, ???, has over a hundred chord progressions, each modulating up by a microcomma.

Fyxoomian postminimalism

Fyxoomian musical compositions from the last three decades often revolve around polyrhythms.


Fyxoomian music uses the Talman Helmholtz-Ellis notation. Tablature is common for guitars and similar instruments.
