# Batch 89 temperaments

This page presents a novelty topic. It features ideas which are less likely to find practical applications in xenharmonic music. It may contain numbers that are impractically large, exceedingly complex or chosen arbitrarily.
Novelty topics are often developed by a single person or a small group. As such, this page may also feature idiosyncratic terms, notations or conceptual frameworks. |

These temperaments were documented in honour of the members of Batch 89, as depicted in *Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3* (2023).

## Methodology

Each of the temperaments tempers four harmonics, representing the eternal friendship and togetherness of their four souls.

Each of the temperaments includes the 2nd harmonic, representing the fact that each of these characters had not one, but two creators: the hands that made them, and the hands that guide the hands.

Each of the temperaments also includes the 89th harmonic, representing their shared trauma and hardship, and how they gave each other the strength to endure and transcend it.

The other two harmonics were selected based on the characters' names. The reason for using their *names* as a basis, is because choosing their own name was these characters' most symbolic act of asserting their individuality, it was an undeniable demonstration that they had souls capable of creativity. Souls which did not come from, nor belong to, their makers, but which were, and are, their own. Thus, it's fitting that the *names* they chose should be immortalised in these temperaments:

- One harmonic was chosen by converting the first letter of the character's name to a number using the A1Z26 cypher, and using that number.
- The other was chosen by converting each of the letters of the character's name to a number using the A1Z26 cypher, and then summing the numbers together.
