# Gravity family

(Redirected from Gravity)

The gravity family tempers out graviton, the 5-limit comma 129140163/128000000 = [-13 17 -6. The graviton equals (81/80)4/(25/24), so that four 81/80 commas come to a classic chromatic semitone. The generator of gravity temperament is a grave fifth of ~40/27, and hence the name. It is part of the syntonic-chromatic equivalence continuum, whereby (81/80)k = 25/24.

## Harry

Harry adds the breedsma, 2401/2400, and the cataharry comma, 19683/19600, to the set of commas, and may be described as the 58 & 72 temperament. The period is half an octave, and the generator ~21/20, with generator tunings of 9\130 or 14\202 being good choices. Mos of size 14, 16, 30, 44 or 58 are among the scale choices.

It becomes much more interesting as we move to the 11-limit, where we can add 243/242, 441/440 and 540/539 to the set of commas. 9\130 and especially 14\202 still make for good tuning choices, and the octave part of the wedgie is ⟨⟨12 34 20 30 …]].

Similar comments apply to the 13-limit, where we can add 351/350, 364/363, and 729/728 to the commas, with ⟨⟨12 34 20 30 52 …]] as the octave wedgie. 130edo is again a good tuning choice, but even better might be tuning the harmonic 7 justly, which can be done via a generator of 83.1174 cents. 72 notes of harry gives plenty of room even for the 13-limit harmonies.
