Xenharmonic analysis

Though there are many different tuning systems that exist, it's always possible to talk about things with a common vernacular and/or relate it to something familiar. With these analyses, I break down harmonic and melodic content of various xenharmonic pieces for which I can obtain the sheet music and hear the structures clearly.

Analysis of Easley Blackwood's "Twelve Microtonal Etudes for Electronic Music Media"

My master's thesis from Ball State University, where I also discuss my ideas for creating the companion composition, "Six Macrotonal Etudes for Electronic Music Media." The Etudes analyzed here are the 13-EDO, 15-EDO, and 23-EDO 

More analyses coming soon!
