Tuning: Mysteries of Music & Math

The Fundamentals of Music

Ancient linkage between music and the mind, between pattern and spirit, is coded into the musical scale. Here is the story. Illustrated by slides, musical examples, and live play with the World Music Menu software.

Infinite worlds of fascinating and beautiful sound lie hidden between the black-and-white keys of our conventional twelve tone keyboard. The World Music Menu enables us to experience a wide variety of scales from around the world, and to experience the unique effects each one has on the mind.

For educators, musicians, and anyone interested in music who wants to expand their horizons.
