5L 3s

From Xenharmonic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

5L 3s refers to the structure of moment of symmetry scales with generators ranging from 2\5 (two degrees of 5edo = 480¢) to 3\8 (three degrees of 8edo = 450¢). In the case of 8edo, L and s are the same size; in the case of 5edo, s becomes so small it disappears (and all that remains are the five equal L's). The spectrum looks like this:

The only notable harmonic entropy minimum is Vulture/Buzzard, in which four generators make a 3/1 (and three generators approximate an octave plus 8/7). The rest of this region is a kind of wasteland in terms of harmonious MOSes.

By a weird coincidence, the other generator for this MOS will generate the same pattern within a tritave equivalence. By yet another weird coincidence, this MOS belongs to a temperament which has Bohlen-Pierce as its index-2 subtemperament. In addition to being harmonious, this tuning of the MOS gives an L/s ratio between 3/1 and 3/2, which is squarely in the middle of the range, being thus neither too exaggerated nor too equalized to be recognizable as such, unlike in octaves, where the only notable harmonic entropy minimum is near a greatly exaggerated 10/1 L/s ratio.
