# Island chords

**Island chords** are essentially tempered chords tempered by the island comma, 676/675.

There are 9 triads, 37 tetrads, 51 pentads, 29 hexads and 6 heptads as 2.3.5.13 subgroup 15-odd-limit essentially tempered chords.

For triads, there are one palindromic chord and four pairs of chords in inverse relationship.

The palindromic triad consists of two semifourths and one perfect fifth, splitting a fourth in two:

- 1-15/13-4/3 with steps of 15/13-15/13-3/2.

The inversely related pairs of chords are

- 1-5/4-13/9 with steps of 5/4-15/13-18/13, and its inverse
- 1-15/13-13/9 with steps of 15/13-5/4-18/13;
- 1-13/10-18/13 with steps of 13/10-16/15-13/9, and its inverse

For tetrads, there are seven palindromic chords and fifteen pairs of chords in inverse relationship.

One of the palindromic tetrads consists of three semifourths and one semisixth,

- 1-13/10-3/2-26/15 with steps of 13/10-15/13-15/13-15/13.
