Joe Monzo and I talk about lots of tuning theory and memories of events past. Comparisons are made between 37edo (alas! The episode is only 1 away!) and 22edo, as he recently completed a wildly chromatic score of a 37edo piece called “The Kog Sisters.” Joe Monzo came up with many important concepts and has gathered a lot of historical and mathematical information together on his website, initially hosted at sonic-arts, but now on tonalsoft. We talk jazz, Tonescape (lattice software), Musescore, workflow, his book (JustMusic), notation (especially of 37edo), LaMonte Young, the monzo (easy way to write primes which Joe first used in tuning theory), interval lists, high-number EDO’s as measurement tools, and, of course, “breaking the lattice barrier.”
