The chord of nature is the overtone series, or harmonic series, considered as a chord; in German this has been called the Klang. The q-limit chord of nature is 1-2-3-4-...-q up to some odd number q, and is the basic q-limit otonality which can be equated via octave equivalence to other versions of the complete q-limit otonal chord.
