Biyatismic chords are essentially tempered dyadic chords tempered by the biyatisma, 121/120.

The biyatismic triad is the 121/120 tempering of 1-11/8-15/8 chord, with steps of 11/8-11/8-16/15.

The biyatismic pentads consist of two palindromic chords and two pairs of chords in inverse relationship. The palindromic chords are 1-5/4-11/8-16/11-8/5 with steps 5/4-11/10-16/15-11/10-5/4 and 1-11/10-11/8-16/11-20/11 with steps 11/10-5/4-16/15-5/4-11/10. The inversely related pairs of chords are 1-5/4-11/8-16/11-20/11 with steps 5/4-11/10-16/15-5/4-11/10 and 1-11/10-11/8-16/11-8/5 with steps 11/10-5/4-16/15-11/10-5/4; and 1-11/10-6/5-3/2-15/8 with steps 11/10-11/10-5/4-5/4-16/15 and 1-16/15-4/3-5/3-11/6 with steps 16/15-5/4-5/4-11/10-11/10.

Equal temperaments with biyatismic chords include 7, 9, 15, 16, 22, 24, 29, 31, 38, 46, and 53 EDOs.
