Ice Tonality

From Xenharmonic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

"Ice tonality" can be described as a tonal system that is a kind of generalization of Hidekazu Wakabayashi's Iceface Tuning.

The tunings on this page are all 12-note subsets of 24edo. More specifically, they are all based on 12edo, with a defined selection of notes ("iced notes") tuned a quartertone up or down.

The following variants have been specified:

Ice Bookshop

Also called "Iceface tuning 0.1". (This was Hidekazu Wakabayashi's first microtonal tuning, which was called "Iceface Tuning" until the end of 2012.)
