@amandag I just want to mention that tempered keyalities really do have different characters…

@kai @amandag I came here to say this. In 1682 they probably weren’t using equal temperament tuning in Europe, so in (say) D major, maybe the tonic chord doesn’t have a perfect 3:2 ratio and you get an unpleasant beat.

(Tagging myself G, because it doesn’t matter if I’m major or minor.)


@kai @amandag Wikipedia link to the Wolf Interval I alluded to in my previous toot. Quite technical but listen to the two audio clips at the end of the article. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_i
