# Father family

(Redirected from Mother)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The father family of rank-2 temperaments tempers out 16/15, the just diatonic semitone. This equates 4/3 with 5/4, so these are "fourth-thirds", or father, temperaments. In a sense, what father is all about is using semisixths or subfourths and pretending that is 5-limit, and like any temperament which seems to involve pretending, father is at the edge of what can sensibly be called a temperament at all. In other words, it is an exotemperament.
