Microtonal Music is music using more than 12 tones per octave. I compose music using Csound and a preprocessor I wrote in Turbo Pascal.

Think of it as "fake but accurate".

Here's one that took a while to make. I was able to build Csound v5 under Linux on an IBM mainframe Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL), thanks to an IBM developer program. Csound is back on the mainframe after not seeing such an architecture for probably 40 years. It runs pretty fast, but that's not the reason to build it on the platform. I just w…
 
Here's a version made on a Linux implementation on Amazon's Web Services. Now that my preprocessor has been ported to open source Free Pascal, it was a snap to compile it on an Ubuntu Linux instance. Csound only needed a simple install. It's my first try at Linux. Next stop: RedHat under z/VM on an IBM IFL at their developer sandbox. Unfortunately,…
 
This is a work in progress. Today I modified the amplitude, octaves, tempos, and added a cello and tuba to the mix. The point of my recent music is choosing from several six note combinations from a ten note undertone scale. Some are very easy on the ears, and some are challenging. See if you can tell which is which. Download or Play it here. Subsc…
 
This is a work in progress. I added some new modes in the scale. Some are more "challenging". The piece steps through nine modes of the 10 available notes in the a scale derived principally from the undertone series with numerators over the demoninator 18. Plus one more note at 27:20 as a 3:2 above the 9:5 (Bb). The whole scale is shown on the foll…
