Systemic Abstractions: The Imaginary Regime

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/konference proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Abstract

The chapter concentrates on the development of a system designed to constrain the pitch interval in western music. Western tuning systems, according to Knakkergaard, developed out of the Ancient Greek's mystical fascination with the number 4. Thus, the Ancient Greek's beliefs and imaginations are very much alive today in a musical system that both regulates and guides compositional imagination, and this remains the case even with the apparent freedom offered music by digitalization.
