  Rotating harmonic space with respect to the vine
Posted by: Marc John - 2014-10-13, 15:25:24 - Forum: Ideas and suggestions - Replies (1)

I'd like firstly to record my admiration for Robin Hayward's invention. It opens up harmonic space in a beautiful way.

Here a suggestion that may have occurred to a few users already: it would be possible to introduce, alongside the transpose feature, the ability to -rotate- the vine through harmonic space or, equally, to rotate the harmonic space in relation to the vine.

To explain: I can pick up a cube off the table and rotate it through 90 degrees around any one of 3 axes, so that when i put it down again the corners that are now touching the tabletop are different to the ones that were initially touching it.

Just so, one could add to the software the ability to rotate the represented 9-dimensional harmonic space around one of its axes. The result would be that different pitches -and- different pitch-relationships would come to lie in the main lattice usually occupied by light blue and grey balls and struts.

  What is the Hayward Tuning Vine for?
Posted by: Robin - 2014-09-19, 12:47:22 - Forum: Background information - Replies (4)

The Hayward Tuning Vine may be used

- as a pedagogical tool, for learning about and exploring Just Intonation;

- for performing music in Just Intonation;

- as an interface for composing and improvising in Just Intonation.

It is a Just Intonation alternative to the piano keyboard.
