In July 2020, I first posted regarding my discovery of ‘Precise Temperament Tuning’ a geometrical approach to music temperament replacing the Just Intonation’s Major Third interval (1.25 or 5/4) with 1.26. In this approach, the MINOR (3rd) interval FALLS (from 1.2 to 1.19) and the MAJOR (3rd) interval LIFTS (increasing from 1.25 to 1.26)…. 🤔….a secret chord perhaps?

By combining 1.26 as the Major Third and a perfect 1.5 (3/2) as the Perfect Fifth I found that a new and complete musical scale could be derived that might overcome some
of the limitations of Equal Temperament Tuning and allow for a direct connection to all geometrical expression.

Both Jason Martineau @martineauarts and Toni Manzotti @tonimazzotti have taken an interest in this approach.

In this video, Toni shows us his analysis. Toni has even gone as far as making a software plugin so that others may use this new tuning. I would like to thank both Jason and Toni for their efforts to bring this novel tuning approach to the world.

Please listen 🎧 with headphones if possible and be sure to go to the end for the comparison reel of “Ana’s Song” composed by @tonimazzotti. PS Let’s see if you can catch how Toni’s (accent) pronunciation of “Robert” is written as “Hobbit” 🤣 by the Closed Captioning AI! ❤️.
