13 Tone Steps in the Twelfth
Abstract:Based on a consonance criterion that is founded on combination tones, first the twelve-step scale is derived from the major triad. The same procedure, extended to consonant intervals not used in the twelve-step scale, then leads to a thirteen-step scale filling the framework of the twelfth0. This scale is presented in just and equal tempered tuning. Approaches are shown to a tonal system, based on this scale, and to the realization of 13-tone music.
