...and? What's the point? Does this math have any musical relevance? Does it sound sexy? Does it sound spiritual? Does 432 evoke other emotions compared to 440 by the same piece being performed? Research into those fields would also be interesting to hear about. :-) Per On Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 5:33 PM, D.
