Flora's taxonomy

  • Tuning rationalism
    • JI purism: this school recognizes that the acoustic quality of JI is of top importance. Some consider music as a platonic ideal object that cannot be approximated at all. Meanwhile, its weaker version is characterized by being maximally strict about JI approximation.
      • Primodality: I don't feel entitled to define this.
      • Stacking based aka lattice based: a more traditional approach to JI. They recognize both the acoustic quality and the algebraic structure of JI.
    • JI approximabilism: this school recognizes that the acoustic quality of JI and the algebraic structure of tuning systems are similarly important, and therefore accepts a tradeoff.
      • RTT: this school encompasses stacking based JI and applies approximation for custom structures.
    • JI agnosticism: this school suspends the question whether the acoustic quality of JI is of importance. It tends to focus on algebraic structures such as mos scales and generalizations.
    • JI indifferentism: this school does not believe the acoustic quality of JI is of importance. Practice in this school is orthogonal to the influence of JI.
  • Tuning empiricism
  • Tuning stochasticism
