Abstract

The subject of this paper is microtonal tuning and a project which has developed several technologically-assisted methods of rehearsing live performance of music based on one particular microtonal scale: 19-tone equal temperament. The open-source Rosegarden sequencer is enhanced with performance metrical capabilities which are designed to be able to cope with pitch classes of arbitrary scales. A rehearsal session and performance of three original one-minute songs written in 19-ET was incorporated in the demonstration.
