Hello to every one,

Due to the present "possible doubts", i´m gonna explain the differences between tempered and natural fifths.

The tempered fifths are calculated multiplying the fundamental frequency by 2^(7/12). The result of doing this 7 times is a Lydian tempered scale arranged in fifths.

If you do the same process but multiplying the fundamental frecuency by 3/2, the result is an untempered Lydian scale( not available in a piano for example).

The mathematical formulae is derived from the LCC, although you can choose tempering or not the scale.

Tempered music and the lCC are not the same , but they are compatible.

In the example I sent to the forum i used tempered frequencies ( available in most instruments, midi, synth.....).

Hope it helps

Isaac

Isaac,

Do you think the math adds perspective on the 5 remaining notes in the lydian chromatic scale?

Hello,

you can follow the series and until reach r x 2^7.

Here's a thought: If we can simplify this for non-mathematicians to understand we're just a few steps away from making a piece of software – something that's been talked about here for years, and something that could allow a younger generation of electro-acoustic musicians to discover, use and develop The Concept for any kind of music. We could start with a Skype video conversation - like you and I Isaac have done before - answering Chesper's great question. We upload it and get feedback. We do that some more and then we translate the result into version 1.0 and we test it.

The potential is for a teaching tool, a composition tool and a software performance instrument – maybe open source on GitHub, maybe in conjunction with the book.

Hi Isaac,

Yes, I think I understand you. I was wondering about additional insight into the perennial questions of why the WOTG skips a fifth, and why the Lydian ladder of fifths has a natural limit of 7 notes.

Hello again,

Well, the explanation of the natural limit is a little bit complex but it can be done.

Let me make another PDF and upload it soon.

Hello again,

Here i upload new material no understand better your the natural limit of the Lydian scale.

Hope it helps.

Soon i will upload musical examples.

Isaac,

Thanks for sharing. I have checked out your papers. While I have not gone over the math in detail, I might have an inkling of what you're getting at.

Is it possible to explain your idea in words and music? I am looking forward to the musical examples.

Yes no prob.

I will make a video or something to explain it better.

Im busy now. But soon i will upload more.
