In this episode, we explore a brief history of regular temperament theory, and also talk about the basics of microtonal interval construction.

Our Patreon bonus content for this episode features Paul and I going over audio examples of the Porcupine and Miracle examples in Paul’s paper “A Middle Path,” and getting more in-depth about the scales themselves and their different intonations.
