Chris Ford at Lambda World Càdiz 2018

 

Dueling Keyboards

Like the computer keyboard, the musical keyboard is a precise and high-bandwidth input device. Its power is a consequence of its elegant embodiment of the structure of Western European music, where simple mathematical ratios are experienced as consonance. In this talk, Chris will use a combination of the two kinds of keyboard to explain scales, chords, tuning systems and some differences between traditional and algorithmic musical performance. Expect demonstrations, and to discover the tragedy of the Pythagorean comma.
