The Harmonic Lattice

I made an interactive visualization of some of the ideas discussed in Harmonic Experience (HE) by W.A. Mathieu. One of the central ideas of HE is that[See the full post at: The Harmonic Lattice]

Very interesting project, and it made me so curious of W.A. Mathieu that I immediately his ‘Harmonic Experience’. Is there some place where I can actually ‘play’ with your piece in order to make sense of the sound/lattice mapping?
best regards,

Nice project. For more info on lattices in intonation theory, see related writings by any of the following (i.e., it wasn’t originated by Mathieu): Ben Johnston, Harry Partch, Lou Harrison, James Tenney, John Chalmers, etc.

Yes, Mathieu’s innovation was to map the lattice onto the staff system; very useful for 5-limit tuning. Very interested in this project – can you keep us updated?
