Abstrakt While temperament may present some apparent advantages, it necessarily sacrifices the distinct “JI fusion sonority” of intervals that are precisely tuneable by ear. These manifest a vast gradation of consonance and dissonance, as yet largely unexplored and with fascinating potential for new compositions. This article proposes a novel approach, based on a mathematical structure called the Stern-Brocot Tree, allowing a finite set of pitches to be generated in just intonation within which music may modulate freely without relying on temperament.
