Jacky Ligon - Numenoctagon

from by Various Artists



The last couple of years have been a time of returning to the exotic intonational possibilities of the 23 tone equal temperament, a beautiful and musically resourceful intonation system which differs significantly in sound and harmonic function from our standard Western tuning. Intended for low volume listening and written in a 37 beat metrical cycle, Numenoctagon, incorporates 5, 8 and 13 tone MOS subsets of 23-ED2. This polyphonic composition is written in a style that reveals the subtle sonic nuances of the intonation and features percussion, microtonal glissandi and call-and-response textures within a small ensemble setting.
