great you're doing this jem7vwh. it's cool to observe the forms this takes amongst diversity.
i would like to mention a few points in My mind while reading this.
microtones, intervals ... whatever the language, it's language. and language is not confined to 1 generation. generations are not confined together to remain the same. Evolution. often the language i need to communicate with those 1000 years before me does not exist in a class directly. it exists in that i am related through evolution as participated in by my dna with all else. their thoughts, teachings, experiences, etc are in a sense ... in me by what i am. i cannot think of any language i've seen that can guide me so well as what is already in me. therefore what is done in notation should often be at my command, not vice versa. so how something sounds to me is an experience i can't really know in my lifetime. i have to remain open minded to all possibilities. so often i cannot know what is 'right' unless i conjour something not directly music. *i should know if i need further divisions within something if what i have is not working. "well, what if you think it works at the time but could have moved on... and comprimised yourself?" because there are many before and after me.
so a dna helix appears, in 4 dimensions i see it as periodic in some sense. at this point i'm amidst periodicity. so i'm not surprised to be near the cosine, and sin waveforms. with these 2 i know that representation of any periodic or nonperiodic waveform may be *formed via fourier series and fourier transform respectively. the important thing being that at any point of sound i have a sense to go anywhere else. the metaphysical weirdnesses that can become quite 'freaky'. similar to someone 'normal' walking in on you and seeing you sitting at a table speaking openly and intensely with what to them simply is thin air (lol).
in the free crossing over between 'micro' and 'macro' an overemphasized something can really shriek. it is a mistake perhaps if i'm guided by what it 'should be'. but for me the shriek is a merely a temporal reaction that the Interpretation/world(s) has changed - that i can quickly adjust to the new reality. some might just opt to say 'cool things come from (mistakes)' etc.
so it's not at all surprising to me that one very thoughtful musical craftsman and explorer has opted to do a string quartet in helicopters. what a thought - his name is Karlheinz Stockhausen and his cool page is at
. there is in fact an interview conducted by BJORK there.
computers/synthesizers are at our command to form personal standards, notation, systems, etc.
